Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus is a perfect side dish for chicken! Flawless crunch and major flavor, asparagus dials up the yum while the red potatoes provide a traditional spin on what is sure to be one of your go to dishes.
Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus
So often we serve vegetable side dishes with one veggie standing out alone. Its easy to just cook broccoli or throw in the carrots but combining two veggies, like asparagus and potatoes, is really the way to go.
Not every one in my family can handle the strong flavors of the asparagus plant (I CAN~) but they will gobble up those potatoes quite easily.
Make them together and it doesn’t matter who leaves what behind because that’s more for me!
You can also skip the parm and instead drizzle in a bit of lemon and rosemary if you want to change the flavors.
In the end this dish is super versatile and matches almost any main meal- in fact, this bottom round roast is a perfect dinner match!
