I have always enjoyed asparagus, however, this preparation takes the gold. The lemon and garlic balance wonderfully to make a side dish that perfectly matches the richness of the beef wellington. Every bite of the asparagus was delicious and the leftover olive oil and lemon on the baking sheet made a great sauce. A quick to throw together vegetable dish, this recipe is going to be a household staple in the future.
