Tuscan-Style Roasted Asparagus

Tuscan-Style Roasted Asparagus

I was making a Tuscan-style chicken dinner and decided to look for a tasty side dish to pair with it. I found this recipe on Taste of Home that looked perfect. I love roasted asparagus and tomatoes together so I figured they would be even tastier topped with Parmesan, toasted pine nuts, and fresh lemon juice. This is a beautiful and delicious side dish that paired nicely with the chicken and my whole family loved it.

  1. I love roast asparagus! Never thought to combine it with roast tomatoes, but I will. 🙂 This is wonderful — thanks.

  2. I’ve been roasting the tarnation out of grape tomatoes recently. This looks like a wonderful pairing of two of my all time favorite veggies!

  3. Wow those look pretty spectacular, Pam. This would be the perfect side for a nice grilled steak or even on it’s own as a light meat. That color really pops.

  4. I love these Pam, look absolutely delicious! And I love asparagus!

  6. This is my kind of side dish! I love asparagus best when it’s roasted. 🙂
