Old Bay Roasted Asparagus

Hi there friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday and didn’t eat too much candy. 🙂

The simple side dish recipe I’m sharing today will hopefully make you feel less guilty if you did.  I’m a firm believer of moderation and not depriving ourselves of the yummy treats that come our way for holidays.  This side will definitely get you back on the moderation trail.

Asparagus is such a yummy vegetable and is definitely abundant in the produce section at this time of year.  That usually means great sale prices as well, which makes my budget and myself very happy campers.  Add in the health benefits (it’s an anti-inflammatory and full of anti-oxidants), and you get a lot of “bang for your buck”.

Here’s the bonus!!  This recipe is extremely quick and easy to make…and I can’t think of anything that it couldn’t go alongside.  As you can see, I served it with some Maryland crab cakes that a longtime friend shipped me for a belated wedding gift, which inspired me to use the Old Bay seasoning.  I have roasted asparagus with several different seasonings in the past, but this has been the most delicious thus far. 🙂
