Baked Asparagus Fries

Coming from a true carb’ lover (Yes, I can admit it, I’m Italian, you can’t blame me.) During the holidays, I make an effort to be aware of the kind of treats I cook and serve. This recipe is one of my favorites and a great healthy alternative for a mindful and truly addictive side dish! I encourage you all to try – I promise you won’t regret it! And your friends will thank you for it too!
