What makes this different than other roasted asparagus recipes? The irresistible addition of garlic slices, which mellow and sweeten as they bake.

I really liked this way of preparing A veggie I already love with Garlic that I love even more, none of the flavors were overpowering they worked together enhancing each other.

I sprinkled some grated cheese on top during the last couple of minutes of roasting. It looked so beautiful, and tasted great! I took it to a potluck, and I got raves. It was all eaten.
