I believe most kids don’t care for vegetables very much. Growing up, my brother and I were very picky about what kind of veggies we would eat.

But I know as you get older you tend to better appreciate the importance of vegetables in your diet. Especially when you are over half a century old like I am.

    I made these baked asparagus tonight for supper to have with some pasta. They were so delicious. This time I baked them in the oven for about 10 minutes. So easy to make and very quick. When I can get to the grocery store again, I will definitely buy more. I am not a fan of Parmesan cheese, but with this vegetable it worked and was right on spot.

    Made these tonight for supper. Instead of putting them in the oven I put them in my toaster oven. Worked great. They were so tasty, I would eat them every night.

      Thanks for the feedback! I find them so much tastier baked then boiled.
