One of my favorite Spring vegetables is fresh asparagus, specially when it’s roasted. I know, almost any vegetables taste good roasted. Same story with garlic too, did you try ? no ?? Stop reading this and place bunch of garlic heads in your oven right now. This will fill your home with the most maddening, irresistible, and mouth-watering aromas imaginable.
While that’s happening, boil some wheat penne pasta too and toss along with garlic and asparagus and you will have an excellent dish that most any guest will be pleased with.
