Roasted asparagus with sliced fennel and onion, drizzled with a little olive oil, is a sure winning elegant side dish. My friend, Linda, always prepares fabulous food with a twist. Her addition of sliced fennel and onion enhances the texture and sweetness of the asparagus. Perfect for easy entertaining.
