You can't beat fresh asparagus over the canned, although my husband loves the canned! I think I may have put too much olive oil on the asparagus as it was a little soggy - not crisp like I had thought it would be - you know like the kind you get in restaurants! But the taste was by far better than out of the can! Also, my husband wanted me to add a little garlic to the oil next time! :)

Very yummy recipe. I added some minced garlic and sprinkled a little salt on top too. This is an easy dish to cook in a toaster oven.

I LOVE THIS RECIPE! It is so easy and the asparagus turns out perfectly. Instead of rolling in oil, I sprayed the cookie sheet with olive oil spray, and then sprayed them with the same. This cuts down on the excess oil. The parm is good, but I have also tried the combo parm, asiago, and romano cheese and this was wonderful as well. They turn out like restaurant quality asparagus. Never a mushy piece. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
