Penne and Roasted Asparagus with Orange Gremolata
This was another interesting recipe from Quick Fix Vegetarian. We figured we might as well enjoy the asparagus while it's readily available so we picked up another bunch a couple days ago. A gremolata is typically a garnish made with lemon, parsley and garlic but in this case it was orange zest starring in the citrus role, along with fresh garlic, parsley and scallions. All that is mixed with olive oil, tossed over roasted asparagus then tossed with pasta. It was definitely something a little different but it was very fresh tasting and we enjoyed it.
