I adore skinny asparagus…especially when it’s roasted.

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F. Lay ‘em out on a baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, garlic salt, black pepper & smoked paprika. Add some hot pepper flakes for a little kick.

Bake the heck out of them until you have crispy tips & well cooked stalks.

Don’t forget to top this pasta with grated cheese. My favorite is Pecorino Romano for it’s rich, salty & lots o’ bang for the buck flavor.
