Easy and very popular. I lined a cookie sheet with foil and then folded one edge up over the tips so they didn't overcook.

Aw man, this was lovely. I've been trying to eat healthier, which isn't always easy, but this recipe is delicious! I'm going to eat asparagus a lot more often. :)

This the by far the easiest way to cook these! I have made the recipe several times and forgot to review it :-) My 7 year old daughter wants to buy asparagus every time we go to the store because she likes it so much.

This was as good as promised with the roasting adding a sweetness to the asparagus which was delightful. I added some freshly ground black pepper and I actually used the white asparagus which is available here in Greece. It is slightly thinner than the green and stringier so it needed peeling almost all the way up to the tip. I feel the white asparagus also needs more cooking time as mine needed at least 25 minutes though this may be related to my oven. Still this was a very simple wonderful, tasty recipe. Many thanks for posting.

This is my favorite way to eat asparagus- it's so good! I also grate a little fresh parmesan cheese and cook for 2 minutes more. (You can count in total cooking time!) Add a little squeeze of fresh lemon juice and yummy!

Was just ok. Easy to prepare, and did give the slightly "nutty" flavor that others mentioned, but I thought the salt seemed to overwhelm the tops. My son said not to bother next time.

Excellent! My only disappointment was that I didn't make more of it. Is it possible to pig out on asparagus? I could have easily!
