I love doing asparagus this way! I put the asparagus in a single layer and just lightly spray them with olive oil then sprinkle the herb on the and the garlic. This is the first time I have used thyme, excellent. I only leave the asparagus in the oven for 10 minutes cause I love them really crisp. If you are not thinking too lite sprinkle some parmesan on for the last 5 minutes and broil MMmmm Thanks again Dorothy

What a wonderful way to cook asparagus. I cooked the asparagus for about 17 minutes and it was the tenderness that we liked. I did as Bergy suggested and sprinkled on a little Parmesan cheese. The thyme flavor went well with the asparagus. Thanks Dorothy.

This is fantastic. I served this with my husband's favorite, chicken fettuccini alfredo. When it came to seconds he wanted more asparagus not the fettuccini. It was easy to prepare and looks nice too. I will have to make extra next time.

Yummee!! I am a real vegetable freak and have always steamed asparagus, this tastes kind of roasted and the subtle taste of thyme adds a very elegant flavor. I would usually just do the butter and lemon pepper route, but I love the flavor of thyme. I used elephant garlic in there and was feeling frisky so I tasted it too, and it was excellent with thyme also! Thanks for a simple, healthy, great flavored veggie!

Only wish we could get asparagus year it is so good. And this recipe gave it another dimention. Excellent recipe and easy to do. I also cut cooking time down to 15 minutes. I think I'm a Dorothy Parks "groupie".

I don't usually "do" veggies, just nuke a bag of frozen, but I thought asparagus deserved special treatment, and this was it!!! I couldn't believe the texture. Creamy describes it exactly (this is asparagus we're talking about???). Can't wait to serve this again.

I usually just steam or boil asparagus, but this way is so much better! It was delicious.

A wonderful new way to do asparagus. I have always just steamed it, but never again. I actually added a small amount of minced garlic directly to the asparagus (it was an error on my part, but turned out well). The asparagus baked for about 17-18 minutes and was wonderfuly crisp-tender. I had to used dried thyme as that's all I had, but the fresh would be even better. Can't wait to make this again. Thanks Dorothy.

This was really easy and the taste was just right. DH was even eating this cold out of the fridge the next day. I sprinkled on some garlic in addition to rubbing the dish with it. We will definitely be having this during asparagus season. Gosh, with recipes like this, fresh asparagus is sooooo much better than that canned stuff.
