"I'm not a big veggie lover so I'm always looking for recipes that will help me enjoy them. This is one of the most delicious asparagus recipes I've tried. We loved it. The thyme and lemon really make the dish."

"He loves asparagus. I do NOT. I call it "spare a gut". However, we both loved this recipe. I MAY have been converted but only when prepared this way. The seasoning does it."

"I cooked this over medium-high heat and the mushrooms browned beautifully making a lot more attractive dish than the one pictured and the flavor withthe thyme and lemon was awesome. This would make a great side dish for just about any grilled protein."
