We love this recipe! It's one of the few ways I can get my boyfriend and father (both meat men) to eat veggies! They both love the flavor which I find ironic since they hate all kinds of veggies! I line a glass pan with foil, pour some olive oil over all of the asparagus, throw some salt on top and add fresh cracked black pepper! Superb! Heads up cooks... be mindful that the oil does have a tendency to run over the sides of your pan because of the heat from the oven. Just keep a watchful eye that this does not happen or your oven will start to burn the oil that drips. 5 STARS! And a huge thanks!

AMAZING! I first tasted asparagus about a year or so ago and I enjoyed the dish. Shopping the other night, I saw asparagus was on sale and I really wanted to try again. Like I always do, I came to Recipezaar in hopes of finding something great. Once again, I was not disappointed!! This was great. DH, picky eater, loved it as well. He even asked for seconds. Didn't have any because I figured we might not like it and I wanted to try something else another night. WRONG! Well, I guess we have dinner tomorrow night planned. Thanks Taylortwo!!

The flavor really was better than steaming. I'm glad I found this recipe! Update: This summer I bought one of those grill pans to use on the outdoor grill (like a skillet but with holes in it...) This recipe works very well with it! Nothing worse than heating up the oven when you've got steaks on the grill!! I cooked the asparagus for approximately 15 minutes and give it a good shake once or twice.

This recipe got my vegetable-hating boyfriend to eat ASPARAGUS! Now THAT is an amazing accomplishment. His favorite part was the tips that got kind of crispy.

so so good the kosher salt just gives this tons of flavor! Follow the measurements on the recipe i thought i would put a little extra oil and salt and there was no need.

I've always grilled my asparagus or nuked it but this has introduced a whole new way and the flavor is awesome. I like roasting it because it both tastes better and I also had very good control over the texture of the finished product, which I think is important with asparagus as most people don't like it limp!

This was my first attempt at making asparagus and I LOVED it. My fiance has made it on the grill before but I really hated it. I'll be making this more often.

Great simple recipe . . . we had it last night and my husband loved the asparagus flavor which really comes thru. Sprinkled on a little black pepper when I took it out of the oven. Just perfect! Thanks.
