Dinner Tonight

Asiago-Crusted Roast Lemon Asparagus

No Comments | Written on January 23, 2015 at 10:59 am , by

Lemon season is in full swing, and we can’t stop finding new ways to use the citrus. One of our new favorite preparation methods for asparagus involves the humble fruit. This recipe is not only beautiful, but tastes delicious. The asiago crust adds a wonderfully nutty flavor to the side dish, and this recipe pairs perfectly with a broiled chicken breast or roast salmon.

Feel free to modify this recipe however you’d like. The juice from a blood orange in place of the lemon is fantastic, and green beans also work well in this simple and elegant side dish. If you’d like to try another type of cheese, we like a combination of Parmesan and Romano cheese as well.

Crockpot Italian Turkey Meatballs From Scratch

You say meatball, we say too heavy. That’s why we put a spin on the traditional Italian recipe and lightened it up at the same time. Don’t think you lose that from-scratch flavor, either! Plus, you can prepare this recipe in the crockpot, which makes this a perfect time-saving recipe.

If you prefer the taste of a homemade sauce, by all means use it in place of what we recommend! However, we find that the homemade meatball is really what gives it that grandma’s kitchen flavor.
