For the Blogging from A to Z Challenge for the month of April, I decided on the theme of food. I don't necessary consider myself a foodie, but I do like good food and I like to cook when I can.
One of my favorite vegetables is asparagus: crisp, green, young tender spears of asparagus = yummy!
My Favorite Roasted Asparagus
1 bunch of asparagus, rinsed with rough ends of stalks cut off
2-3 slices of thick cut bacon, uncooked and chopped/diced
A pinch of Kosher salt, optional
Spray the bottom of a 7x11 dish with cooking spray (olive oil or vegetable oil spray). Spread the asparagus in the dish. Sprinkle the uncooked bacon over the asparagus. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 20-40 minutes, depending on how crunchy or mushy you like your vegetables.
