Roasted Asparagus & Tomatoes
I have a habit of buying too much asparagus when it’s in season, but it doesn't go to waste! I toss the spears with cherry tomatoes and goat cheese for this side. Be sure to use good quality goat cheese—it makes all the difference. —Holly Battiste, Barrington, New Jersey
