Roasted Asparagus with Lemon, Garlic & Red Pepper Flakes.

Yay, it’s Springtime!!

I know it’s Springtime when asparagus is abundant in the grocery store and at a great price, I might add.  I adore asparagus so much!  It’s easy, versatile and so very good for you.

Anyway…..this great side dish is one of my faves.  I make it all the time because it’s pretty much good with everything!  I love the garlic-y, spicy and lemony flavor. It pairs well with so many things…so it’s a quick go-to vegetable for me.
