This was a quick and tasty veggie to have with our chicken. I am not a huge fan of sesame oil, but there was such a little amount that it did not overpower the asparagus. I have some thick asparagus so cooked it for 15 minutes to get them tender and sprinkled a little sea salt on it when it came out of the oven. Made for 2012 Spring PAC.

  3. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes or until the asparagus is crisp-tender, turn once.
