Less is more.

You’ve heard it before- “Less is more.”

However, how often do we actually remember that?’

I have a hunch, that more often than not, the wish for less work and more yummies comes to mind around the dinner hour, when we find ourselves hungry and not in the mood to spend hours in the kitchen.

I feel you there, and thus am very happy to share this simple and scrumptious meal!

This recipe, is a perfect example of less is more, done perfectly. With only four ingredients, and one baking sheet, you can have a scrumptious meal or appetizer on you hands in mere minutes.

Not a fan of asparagus? Feel free to switch out these veggies with something else, such as sliced tomato, mushroom, or onion. You can’t go wrong, but remember, sometimes, less is more 🙂

Happy eating, and come back soon!

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  2. Roll out the dough out into a rectangle, folding the edges up slightly.
