I adore skinny asparagus…especially when it’s roasted.
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F. Lay ’em out on a baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, garlic salt, black pepper & smoked paprika. Add some hot pepper flakes for a little kick.
Bake the heck out of them until you have crispy tips & well cooked stalks.
This dish would be perfect served with my Honey Bee Martini. Picture a dinner outdoors with all these lovely summer flavors!
Serve up as a side or a main course.
