Reviews for Lemon-Roasted Asparagus
"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."
"Awful. No one cared for this one."
"This was an easy and tasty way to fix asparagus. The garlic and lemon complimented the asparagus and was the perfect accompaniment for our Easter meal."
"I've never been a fan of asparagus, but this was delicious! It has just the right amount of spices and flavor, and is so easy and quick to make."
