Roasted Asparagus. This is a great recipe. To vary it I sometimes add a little Balsamic Vinegar. Also instead of black pepper I like to use Weber's Kickin' Chicken spice which is a blend of peppers and spices. It really adds to the flavor profile. I like the skinny stalks because they are more tender and you don't have to peel them..
