Crispy Parmesan Asparagus Sticks
Who would have ever thought I would get excited about seeing something green on sale in the grocery store? Not me. But that’s what happened when I walked by these super thin asparagus spears. How often do I find thin asparagus that doesn’t look half dead and is on sale? Rarely. And I sort of like asparagus. The whole upchucking thing usually doesn’t happen until the third of fourth spear. But I figured I could possibly prevent that mess if I coated these in something crispy and cheesy. These were so incredibly easy to make and tasted delicious – kind of like little asparagus “fries.” I also think that these will taste even better with thicker asparagus spears.
