My husband is a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, so the first time I made this meatless recipe, he was not thrilled. Once he tried it, he was hooked. Now he asks me to prepare it often. —Cindy Macha, Richmond, Texas
Kelley Casey of Fairfax, Virginia highlights the garden-fresh taste of asparagus with a mild lemon dressing and Parmesan cheese in this delicious side dish. Try it with pork or chicken for a lighter meal.
"Now that our six children are grown, they've started sharing recipes with me - and I love it," beams Louisville, Kentucky reader Anna Kreymborg. "This tasty way to prepare fresh asparagus - by roasting the spears, then serving them with a Dijon dressing at room temperature - came from our daughter."
Since my husband and I both work full-time. I'm always looking for fast nutritious recipes. The whole family loves this tasty treatment for asparagus. I can't make it often enough.
