Love asparagus!! From Cooking light

Top Review by sarahj

great recipe and pretty too! I used 3/4 C canned chopped tomatoes, parboiled asparagus for a couple min. In 9x13 pan arranged asparagus and put tomato mixture across middle. 10 min, at 400. Come summer I will use fresh tomatoes and herbs and not warm it in oven. Great with trout almondine and brown rice.
