Lemon Garlic Asparagus

Alexa Brown

I love asparagus, but trying to get the rest of my family to eat can be a bit of a struggle.  I mean, vegetables in general can be a struggle for so many people.  This recipe is one that is well liked in my house.  I love finding recipes that are simple and enjoyable for everyone.  My kids love this recipe and I love that they do!  Enjoy!
