  1. Cynthia, you are making me hungry! This will be perfect side vegetables with the turkey that I am planning to cook this coming Thursday. I used to love baking the asparagus and wrap it with bacon as an appetizer but we will have a lot of food so it is better to stick to this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe! 

    1. I have heard of baking asparagus wrapped in bacon but I haven’t tried it (yet).  Probably because I never considered it as an appetizer but now I think I will the next time I have guests!  Thank you for the great idea and I I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. 

  2. I have heard alot about how medicinal this herb is and i can now confirm why. Roasting it with olive oil and nuts makes it more nutritious and juicy as well. This one is a sure one that am gona try and I would really want again to tank you for sharing this wonderful post.

    1. Asparagus is loaded with health benefits…low in calories and a good source of many vitamins.  One serving provides 60% of your daily recommended intake of folic acid!  And it tastes great!  Please check back in to let me know how you liked this recipe!
