Servings: 4 servings
- 15 to 20 new potatoes, halved (if the potatoes are really tiny, use more and leave them whole)
- 1 medium bunch (about 15 spears) asparagus
- 5 cloves garlic, crushed and then thinly sliced (crushing first helps the flavor spread around better!)
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 2 tbsp rosemary (finely chopped. Sub with sage, or, if using dry herbs, use 2 tsp)
- Dash of ground black pepper
- Salt to taste
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, red pepper flakes, herbs, black pepper, salt and garlic. Set aside while you prep the veggies.
Toss the potatoes in half the herb-garlic mixture (you can do this in a bowl or by placing the potatoes and the herb-garlic mixture in a plastic bag and shaking it until the herbs have coated the potatoes). Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
Toss the asparagus in the remaining herb-garlic mixture, in the same bowl or plastic bag you used for the potatoes.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, toss in the asparagus and give the potatoes a stir with the spatula. Place the baking sheet back in the oven and bake another 10 minutes or until asparagus is lightly golden-brown.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
