I know the picture says sundried tomato, but that was the original and I was not paying attention when I was editing pictures. Much professional. I also completely left out the pesto part, which in my eyes is pretty important because pesto is important. Regardless of my naming faux pas on my picture, this recipe is amazing! I am not really largely into sundried tomatoes, but love roasted grape tomatoes, so that's what I subbed in. It works perfectly in this recipe since you have to roast asparagus too. Steak got added to the mix because we were craving steak and thought...why not?! Overall, the elements all worked together wonderfully and made a meal that is definitely a favorite for most of my family (Matthew doesn't like asparagus too much).

If you want something with pesto to go along with a meal, these Roasted Pesto Bacon Potatoes are a great side dish. But who needs potatoes when you could have this Arugula Pesto Pasta Salad with Grilled Chicken from Hardly a Goddess.
