Tarragon Roasted Asparagus

It's Wednesday . . . What's for dinner at your house?
By Wednesday I am usually struggling with a menu, despite my best efforts to plan the week in advance.  So I thought I would share one of our 'go-to' sides that's simple, super tasty and pairs well with just about anything.  There are no real exact measurements for this recipe either, so don't be afraid to experiment with the ingredients and find the flavor combination that you like best!
Tarragon Roasted Asparagus

1-2 bundles of asparagus, washed and prepped
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Dried Tarragon
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Once they are washed and patted dry, snap off the woody ends and place on a foil-lined baking sheet in a single (or mostly single) layer.  Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Sprinkle with dried tarragon.  Toss to coat thoroughly.  Roast in preheated oven for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.  Serve hot!

These days I always buy two bundles of asparagus for my family of 4, as they shrink considerably once they are roasted and you really can't eat enough of this delicious veggie!   And I love, love, love balsamic vinegar and tarragon, so I go heavy on both, especially since some will get left behind on your foil.  So yummy!

Why not try it tonight?!

  10. The best place to learn Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of Chinese language class and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
