  • Roasted Asparagus with Feta

    I never liked Asparagus until I tried this.

    Roasted Asparagus with Feta

    2 lbs fresh crisp asparagus
    1/4 cup olive oil
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp lemon zest
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
    kosher salt, to taste fresh
    ground black pepper, to taste
    1-2 tbsp chopped fresh Italian Parsley
    3-4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
    Juice of 1 Lemon

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    2. Heat olive oil, minced garlic, lemon zest, oregano and red pepper flakes in a small pan over low heat until garlic becomes golden and oil becomes fragrant; remove from heat and allow to cool.

    3. Bend asparagus gently until it breaks and a natural point and discard ends. (I usually end up with 2 broken pieces per 1 "stalk" of asparagus).

    4. Toss asparagus pieces with infused olive oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet (one with a side edge). (At this point I also poured the remaining olive oil/garlic mixture over the asparagus, though the original recipe did not call for that.)

    5. Season asparagus with salt and pepper.

    6. Sprinkle asparagus with crumbled feta cheese.

    7. Roast at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

    8. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and squeeze the lemon over the asparagus, being careful to catch the seeds. Serve hot.

    Makes 3-4 servings.
