Garlic Roasted Asparagus
The process of roasting brings out the natural sweetness in vegetables and intensifies their natural flavors.

Did you know... One of the great benefits of roasting vegetables is that you conserve both the flavor and important nutrients in the vegetable itself. The "good stuff" stays right where it should... in the vegetable!
