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

    This sounds really good, but I'm not a fan of goat cheese. What other cheese do you recommend?

    I liked this recipe. The goat cheese made it interesting and the walnuts gave it a crunchy texture!! Easy to make, too!
