Roasted Pecan Asparagus

Cynthia Martinez


This is a dish I came up with about 20 years ago. I don't know if anybody else does this or not, have never looked. I just mixed two things that I loved together and it was fabulous.

I'm sure if you wanted to grill the asparagus it would be delightful also.
