Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic

4 tablespoons parsley leaves
freshly chopped, or 1 tablespoon dried
salt and black pepper

*
1 pound asparagus
ends trimmed and washed
1 pint cherry tomatoes
2 cups, halved
*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
cup kalamata olives

*
½ cup feta cheese

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450℉ (230℃).

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, parlsey, salt and black pepper to taste.

Place the asparagus on a large baking sheet, drizzle 1 1 /2 tablespoons of garlic-oli mixture over the asparagus.

Toss to evenly coat. Arrange the asparagus to a single layer.

In a medium bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes and olives with remaining garlic-oil mixture until evenly coated.

Spread the cherry tomatoes and olives on top of the asparagus.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 9 minutes.

Remove from the oven and drizzle the lemon juice over the vegetables.

Love this one a lot! The original recipe from cook's country didn't add any feta, but I did, and the result was outstanding.

The combination just worked, and it had so much flavour. Will be definitely making this one again.
