Tuscan Roasted Asparagus

The unofficial start to summer began last week and I have been invited to plenty dinner parties and BBQs this week. One of my friends and I have been really trying hard to incorporate more vegetables into our diet, and since asparagus was on sale last week we came up with this little recipe.  Hope you enjoy!
