Caesar Asparagus Recipe

“This delicious dish is an easy way to get my daughter to eat asparagus. Sometimes, I make the croutons from focaccia bread. They add another dimension of texture and flavor.” —Patsy Phillips, Sanford, North Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 25, 2011

"We thought this was absolutely delicious. The croutons bake while the asparagus roasts, all in one easy step, and the caesar vinaigrette adds the finishing, flavorful touch. I put the asparagus, olive oil, bread, salt & pepper into a sealed zip-top bag to combine, rather than tossing them together in a bowl. Much easier and less mess."
