My youngest son asked me for asparagus (age 4: I know! right?), and thanks to this recipe, we were all happy. This is simple and delicious! Next time I will use LESS OIL, and maybe a tiny bit less roasting time (but that could've been my friend's oven).

LOVED IT! This is one of the recipes that taste so good your guests will never guess how simple it is to make. the only change I made was to sprinkle a bit of garlic powder on top. I served it for Father's Day and everyone loved them. Thank you luvin! Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

I was looking for a new way to make my asparagus for dinner tonight. I was sure that this would "Wow" my family after reading all the great reviews. I made it exactly as stated and didn't make any changes. While everyone thought it was ok, I didn't get a single "Wow!"
