"Very good. Mine came out very lightly flavored of the garlic and the lemon. I would add even more next time. These looked gorgeous as I pulled them out of the oven - with the roasted lemon wedges scattered about the platter."
"Good asparagus! I cooked this on my gas grill on indirect heat and it came out perfect. The combination of olive oil, garlic and lemon made the asparagus really tasty. Don't leave out the lemon wedges, they add a lot to the 'sauce'. Thanks for the recipe Mimi!"
"Excellent! I increased the garlic and lemon. Spectacular! Will definitely make again."
"Simple tasty recipe and so easy. We really enjoyed this recipe. The timing is just right - the asparagus still had some crunch"
"Delicious. A lot of flavor for minimal work. Can't beat that."
"The flavor and texture of the roasted asparagus is amazing. I noticed that others would have liked a more pronounced lemon flavor, but I found the lemon zest mixed with the olive oil very pleasing and not overly lemon. Just enough lemon to let the nutty flavor come through. Thanks so much for this recipe. I have used it many times, always with great success."
"This recipe has a nice flavor to it, easy to make and minutes to the table. I put everything in a LARGE mixing bowl to be able to coat the asparagus easily with the oil mixture. Transferred to baking sheet and baked it. I'd like to try the hot infusion method next time to see if the flavors can't be disturbed more evenly. Made this for Zaar World Tour 2006 "
"These were delicious. I infused the oil with the zest and garlic as another reviewer suggested. Mmmm!"
"Rather than baking the lemon wedges with the asparagus, just before serving I microwaved a lemon 15 sec, cut it into wedges & served it with the asparagus. I think I got a more pronounced lemon flavor this way. Anyway, I loved it."
"Very subtle lemon flavor; I think by preparing the lemon/garlic oil in advance and allowing it to infuse a bit you would achieve more of it. That being said, we enjoyed this dish. Thanks for posting!"
"Simple, Easy, and Taste Great. What more could you ask for. There was just a hint of the lemon and it worked well with the garlic. This will become a family regular dish. Mmmm....good."
"Thanks for a simple, easy to follow asparagus dish that went well with the rest of our dinner tonight. I halved this easily, just using a really small lemon. roast asparagus has a lovely flavour and texture-nicer I think than steamed or boiled. "
