Garlic Roasted Asparagus

A really delicious combination, garlic roasted asparagus with Parmesan and balsamic vinaigrette.

A really delicious combination, garlic roasted asparagus with Parmesan and balsamic vinaigrette. Bakerette.comI found this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens special issue “From Garden to Plate”, however, I chose to adapt it to make it even more flavorful by adding Balsamic Vinaigrette and Parmesan Cheese to the ingredients list and it came out spectacular.. This would be a great side dish with Salmon, Steak, or even poultry. For those who like wine, try it with Ciabatta and Chardonnay.
