1 pound asparagus (I used 1 bundle from Trader Joe’s) trim the ends
1 slice multi-grain or whole wheat bread, I used Milton’s Original Healthy Multi-Grain bread
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
Cooking spray, I used olive oil cooking spray for this recipe
Salt and pepper, to taste
1½ tablespoons Girards Light Caesar Dressing or Cardini’s, see shopping tip
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated or shredded
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Toast bread and cut into bite size pieces. Coat a pan with cooking spray. Place asparagus on pan along with diced toasted bread. Drizzle 2 teaspoon of olive oil over the top. Using hands, toss well to coat asparagus and bread cubes. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Roast in oven for about 6-8 minutes until asparagus is tender-crisp and bright green in color. Remove from oven.
3. Place asparagus in serving dish. Sprinkle croutons all over asparagus. Drizzle dressing over top and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cheese.
