Rule #198: Every now and then, you’ve gotta jazz it up.

I’m always looking for a new, easy way to jazz up weeknight veggies. There’s only so many times you can eat the same roasted veggies week-after-week. So, I decided to go for an old favorite and make it even EASIER to throw together on a busy weeknight. This easy Asparagus with Balsamic Tomatoes is sure to be a new favorite side dish in your house!

I love me some goat cheese, y’all. It’s creamy, it’s mild, but it still has some tang. Mmm. Mmm, baby. If goat cheese isn’t your jam, you can sub Feta or Parmesan instead.

First, wash and trim yer asparagus. Then, mix together olive oil, halved cherry tomatoes, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
