I messed up my recipe a little bit. I didn’t add the feta before it went in the oven and I think it would have made the dish way better. Call it distractions in life whatever, it was still good and I’ll make it again soon the right way!
Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Feta
(Adapted from Gonna Want Seconds)
2 pounds Fresh Asparagus, Trimmed
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
4-6 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Teaspoon Fresh Lemon Zest
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
Salt – To Taste
Black Pepper – To Taste
1/2 Cup Feta Cheese, Crumbled
In a small sauce pan heat the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, oregano, and red pepper flake over low heat just until the garlic starts to become golden. Remove pan from heat and cool about 10 minutes. (Garlic will continue to brown a bit more)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
On a rimmed baking sheet, toss asparagus with infused oil until well coated. Arrange asparagus into a single layer, using a second baking sheet if necessary. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss Feta evenly over asparagus.
Roast asparagus in preheat oven 10-12 minutes until it reaches desired tenderness.
Cut lemon in half and squeeze lemon over asparagus and serve.
