Asparagus has been so good this year, and this lemon garlic asparagus recipe is amazing!
Each time I go shopping, I buy a few more pounds of this delicious vegetable. Prices are great, and flavor is at its peak. The veggie has been finding it’s way into my breakfasts, lunches and dinner.
Lemon garlic asparagus goes well with pasta and makes a satisfying lunch or dinner that is vegetarian and vegan. I used buckwheat soba noodles when I made it this time.
You can easily substitute another kind of pasta. Even regular spaghetti is good in this recipe.
