- Arrange the asparagus and the mushrooms separately so you can plate it easier as we do above.
- No need to use aluminum foil or parchment paper. If you’re using a good quality pan there should be easy cleanup with this recipe. By using foils and papers or even silicone you may not get a nice roast on your vegetables. Need new baking sheets? Our top pick is USA Bakeware which has a silicone coating and they are PTFE and PFOA free. There’s also stainless steel bakeware which does not contain aluminum, but we have not tested these. The USA bakeware is very easy to clean.
