This is a very nice way to do asparagus, when you put it on the grill the little packets of foil puff right up. I really enjoyed this I love lemon and I love asparagus what a great combination. Thank you for posting. Made for the diabetic forum July 2011.

Made this as given, but I did use three foil packets since there were three of us & I sort of wanted to indicate that there were three servings! Worked great, & tasted wonderful! I almost added some lemon pepper, but decided to stick to the recipe & found the combo of basil & thyme just right! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
