Recipes from the Farm – Asparagus

After getting our first couple of weeks of CSA groceries, we have been getting a lot of asparagus. It’s spring time so a lot of what we get is green stuff but there are only so many ways that we can fix these veggies. So it was a challenge for me to try something new with something we have a lot of each week.

The first week I fixed it roasted and last week I did two different dishes with asparagus. The first was asparagus casserole which is something that my family fixed a lot when we were home but never with fresh asparagus. The casserole was always fixed with  canned asparagus but the fresh was actually very good in it.

The second dish I made was one I made up. I cut the ends off and drizzled some oil over them in a bake safe pan.

I then opened a jar of artichoke hearts and dumped them over the asparagus. I then sprinkled with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.

Once I had it ready, I baked it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Sean and I both really liked this dish and it is one that I will probably make again in the future. It was a great combination of veggies.

Next up are recipes for spinach and lettuce!
