Oven Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

Do I sound like a nerd if I say I LOVE vegetables? I think the blog is a clear indication of my sweet tooth, but I also really really love vegetables. I guess they balance each other out, right? :)

Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies and this is a simple side that's great with just about anything. This time we ate it along with our butternut squash, black bean, and feta pita sandwiches....basically a heavenly meal!

This isn't even much of a recipe, it's so basic, but I wanted to post it in the hopes that it'll inspire some of you to eat your veggies ;)

Oven Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

-1 bunch of asparagus (we used two bunches so we'd have leftovers!)
-1/2 package white mushrooms
-olive oil
-salt, pepper, and garlic powder, to taste

1. Wash and chop asparagus into one inch pieces. Slice mushrooms.
2. Add both vegetables to a baking dish. Lightly coat with olive oil, mixing to ensure that everything is evenly coated.
3. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

4. Roast at 400F for approximately 30 minutes, to desired tenderness.
