Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus October 23, 2012

We love asparagus and potatoes so this recipe jumped out at me. It was super simple to put together and we really enjoyed it but I would recommend getting thicker asparagus since the thin stuff got super crispy. This side goes great with red meat or white.


  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus, with thick stalks, ends trimmed, cut in 1 1/2 – 2 inch pieces
  • 1-2 pounds new potatoes, cut in half or thirds (the larger ones)
  • olive oil
  • 3 cloves, garlic, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dry Italian seasoning, crushed between fingertips
  • sea or kosher salt and fresh black pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh basil or parsley, chopped
  • fresh Parmesan cheese, grated, for serving

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In an extra large mixing bowl toss the asparagus, potatoes, 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning and plenty of salt and pepper together. Alternately you can use your hands to massage the oil and seasonings into the vegetables.

2. Grease a roasting pan, casserole dish or sheet pan or line with parchment paper. Roast vegetables about 35-45 minutes until potatoes are tender. Garnish with fresh herbs. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
