Springtime always means fresh asparagus on our Ranch.  The asparagus is just gorgeous this time of the year and is usually on sale.  I love enjoying the gourmet taste of roasted asparagus while I am saving those pennies.  And buying veggies in season really guarantees the freshness.  This Garlic Parmesan Asparagus recipes  is quick and has a rich caramelized taste, it is my favorite way to enjoy this springtime treat.
