Reviews for Roasted Asparagus
"Excellent! I forgot about the sesame seeds, but didn't miss them."
"Perfect every time!"
"Didn't use sesame seeds, but it was still very good and easy to prepare!"
"This was SO good, I never roasted veggies before and had to make another batch it went so quick, I will be trying this with other veggies now I know how good roasting tastes."
"Davulous. Didn't have olive oil so I used 2 tablespoons of butter. Will definitely make again."
"My family did not think they liked asparagus until they tried this recipe!"
"This is my favourite way to eat asparagus. So simple, yet so delicious!"
"I don't really follow this recipe exactly. I use as much or as little asparagus as I like, then just drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Bake as directed. I skip the sesame seeds, since I don't usually have those on hand. I like asparagus, but making this way I LOVE it! It is so much better than steaming."
"Better than with cheese sauce..I like using some garlic powder instead of the salt..yum"
"This is a favorite of ours, we omit the salt and add "Mural of Flavors" seasonings from Penzy's spices. Very good as well and low in sodium."
"So incredibly simple to prepare, but such excellent flavor."
