Roasted Tomato Asparagus with Feta & Garlic

Oh sunny day! And we know what sunny days mean, BBQ’s!!! I was so excited to BBQ some chicken and try a new asparagus recipe. Being in the middle of a move I tried really hard to get rid of everything in my fridge and somehow make it a part of this delicious asparagus recipe. Wow, did I have a lot!

Here is the easy recipe:

-1 bunch of asparagus (I love the thick asparagus from Harbor Greens)
-1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes cut in half
-1/2 cup of feta cheese
-1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
-5 chopped basil leaves
-1/4 cup diced onions
-1 tsp salt
-¼ cup diced red pepper
-1/4 cup diced green onion
-3 cloves minced garlic
-1 tsp pepper
-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

First cut ends off asparagus and spread on foil lined baking sheet.

In a small mixing bowl put all ingredients EXCEPT avocado in. Doesn’t matter what order you go in, just as long as they all get in there. I put in the olive oil last.

When all ingredients are in bowl, start stirring. Stir well, coating all of the ingredients with the olive oil.

Once it is all stirred pout evenly over spread out asparagus. If asparagus need more olive oil spread a little on before placing in oven.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and cook asparagus for 25 minutes.

Taste one asparagus to make sure it is tender. If so, take it out to cool.

Slice up a small avocado and place on top. Serve hot! Yummmm!
