This tasted good but the cooking method did not work for me. I had small asparagus so I tested it at 20 minutes and it wasn't done. I then tested it at 30 minutes and they were still very crunchy. I then test again at 45 minutes and they still were not done. I ended up putting them in a steamer bag and finishing them in the microwave so we could have them with dinner.

This was good...but the cooking time caused the dish to be not great, in my opinion. I cooked it for 30, the middle ground for the recipe, and the asparagus were pure sog. I will try this recipe again, add garlic and crushed red peppers, and cut the cooking time down to 15-20 minutes. This would be the preferred cooking time if you want any kind of firmness to your asparagus. While mine tasted good...they were pure mush. Will try this again, altering the cooking time, and re-post.

Oh my, what screams Spring more than fresh asparagus. I made this to go with our Easter brunch and it was so simple and easy. I made as directed and then just popped it in the oven at the same time my rolls were baking and they were done and ready to go when dinner was on the table. Great flavor, but be sure and follow the timing as I went a little to long and they were a little over cooked - but that was my fault and the taste was still great.

This is a great method. I kicked it up a notch and added minced garlic, greek seasoning and alittle Johnny's seasoning salt. Baked for 15 minutes at 200 than turned the oven up to 375 and baked 5 minutes more. I had some small shalks of Asparagus is why it didnt really take that long for it to bake. Turned out wonderful, will use this method more often. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

We really enjoyed this, especially the easy prep & clean up. I used frozen asparagus spears, and baked them for 30 min. I might try 35-40 min. next time. Also, I might use olive oil instead of butter & see how that goes. Thanks.

Great way to make asparagus. I used butter and some garlic salt and laid the foil packet on the bottom of my oven floor and they got a little crispy, but then again I like my food a little crispy. Thanks for the easy and good recipe.

Baking Asparagus is the only way to go! I cut the butter back to 1 tbsp and only baked them for 20 minutes. I like them still crisp.Thanks Miss Dipsy for a reminder of how much I enjoy baked asparagus and done your way is perfect

An excellent recipe that worked well on our BBQ tonight. Like Kooka I added a few different ingredients. Thanks for a great idea.

I prefer asparagus on the grill this way. In fact, even if I am not grilling meat I still turn on the bbq and cook the asparagus this way. It brings out the flavor so much.
