Side dishes can be deceiving, but they don’t have to be.  This easy lemon Parmesan asparagus recipe is delicious, unexpected and so easy to make.  It’s also only 2 SmartPoints per serving on Weight Watchers, so it’s healthy!

There is something about the under-utilized lemon that makes things just taste better.  And I do truly believe that lemons aren’t used in cooking enough (until now).  

I have to tell you that I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out when I first tried it.  But it was so delicious!

When I decided to make the Parmesan Chicken, I knew I needed a side that wasn’t many points on Weight Watchers.  This one delivers on flavor, low points, and who doesn’t love Parmesan cheese?

This recipe just sort of happened – and aren’t those recipes the best ones?  I personally think we will have this multiple nights, because it’s easy and husband approved.
