Simply Grilled and Easily Roasted

We’re going to start out with an easy idea that anyone can do, and that is simply grilling or roasting your asparagus. Your options for grilling and roasting asparagus are almost endless. You can use this vegetable with lemons, onions, artichokes, olive oil, salt and pepper, and so much more. You can rub it down with your other favorite spices as well. We suggest that you try both grilled and roasted, as being grilled will give it more of a smoky flavor.

Pasta and Asparagus

Asparagus pairs well with pasta and white sauces with ham or seafood. Before adding asparagus to your pasta, be sure to boil it for about two minutes first.
