Oven Roasted Asparagus with Browned Breadcrumbs
(Makes 3 Servings)

Ingredients:


1/2 Pound Asparagus (Fresh- Cleaned / Trimmed)
1 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1.5 Teaspoon Garlic (Fresh / Minced)
1 Tablespoon Butter (Melted)
1/4 Cup Breadcrumbs (Plain)
1.5 Tablespoons Parsley (Fresh- Sliced Thin)
To Taste Salt
To Taste Black Pepper (Fresh Ground)
2 Teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar (Aged)

Procedure:

- Toss the asparagus with the oil and garlic; season with salt and pepper.

- Lay the asparagus on a non-stick baking pan.

- Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 30 minutes. (Be sure to turn them a couple times while they are cooking for even browning.) Also, the cooking time will depend on the size of the asparagus. The ones used in this recipe were a medium size.

- Put the butter, breadcrumbs, and parsley in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; season with salt and pepper.

- Cook the breadcrumbs until they are golden brown.

- Arrange the asparagus on a plate and top with the browned breadcrumbs.

- Drizzle vinegar over asparagus.

- Enjoy!
