WASHINGTON COUNTY - It was a night of emotions - and a lot of memories. Not just about the wins - 698 of them as basketball coach at St. Maria Goretti High School - but the relationships he developed and the people he has touched.

Kelly Rajahpillay and her husband moved to Hagerstown in 2001. They emigrated from the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius. Rajahpillay said the cuisine of Mauritius is influenced by foods from India, China, France, England and Africa. It is often spicy. This recipe is an adaptation from a traditional food from the Chinese region of Canton. Rajahpillay said when she serves these eggs, Americans wonder what the dish is. But when they try it, they like it, she said. These roasted eggs are like a snack.

Here is a recipe to consider making for Passover, the eight-day Jewish festival marking the ancient Hebrews' deliverance from slavery in Egypt. This year, Passover begins at sundown today and continues until sundown on April 16. ROASTED GARLIC ASPARAGUS (Tested by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) I'd never made asparagus on parchment paper, but this recipe turned out great, and cleanup was a snap. I loved the flavor from the onion powder, which I don't normally use. -- Bob Batz Jr. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 8 cloves fresh garlic, minced 1 teaspoon onion powder 2 tablespoons fresh finely chopped parsley 2 pounds thin asparagus, ends trimmed Fleur de sel or coarse sea salt Freshly ground black pepper Makes 6 servings.
