Britney’s Spears

Cooking time: 12 to 15 min


Oops! They did it again! Here's a tasty side dish even pop tarts would enjoy.


  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lb. asparagus spears
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/4 cup crumbled light feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Trim tough ends off asparagus.

  2. Spray a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange asparagus in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic. Mix asparagus around a bit to make sure they’re well coated.

  3. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness of asparagus. Be careful not to overcook, as the Podleskis note: Soggy asparagus is no fun and no yum!

  4. Arrange cooked asparagus on a serving plate. Sprinkle with vinegar, salt and pepper. Top with crumbled feta and serve immediately.
