"Wow! Fantastic! I usually use lemon-garlic-pepper blend, but the fresh ingredients are WAY better! Even preparing it made my mouth water! I used "medium" thick asparagus and cut the recipe in half. I baked them in my Breville toaster oven with the convection fan, and they were perfectly crisp tender at the end of 8 minutes. I cooled them quickly by spreading them on a plate and placing in front of a fan. We'll have them tonight at room temperature."
