Another tasty and traditional Easter side dish is Roasted Asparagus. It is quick and easy to prepare and even easier to enjoy!
• 1 pound of asparagus, trimmed
• 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
• Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Trim the woody ends from the asparagus. Spread the spears in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Toss gently. Roast until the asparagus is tender, about 15 minutes.
Note: You can turn this side dish into an appetizer by wrapping each asparagus with ½ slice of prosciutto ham (cut lengthwise). Make sure the asparagus is completely cooled before you wrap them with prosciutto. Serve at room temperature.
