Roasted Asparagus with Lemon-Rosemary Breadcrumbs

Fresh, homemade breadcrumbs might just be the most life-altering culinary discovery of my year.

Add those to one of my favorite veggies and we gotta home run.

Oh. Yum.

Roasting asparagus brings out its natural sweetness. The yumminess starts with a simple toss in olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

And the fresh breadcrumbs. Oh yes..yes..yes.

I use my Cuisinart for homemade breadcrumbs. SO easy and quick! Throw in a couple slices of any bread you prefer, lemon zest, some chopped rosemary (or any fresh herb), salt, pepper, a clove of garlic...and yep, a pat or two of BUTTER. And...mix!

Just don't leave out the butter. Just don't.

Sprinkle your gorgeous homemade breadcrumbs on top of the fresh asparagus. Roast in a 425 degree oven until golden. Finish off with an extra grate of lemon zest and eat up immediately!

Wonder what my favorite side dish was for our Easter dinner...hmmm..
