"My whole family loves this roasted asparagus. This is easy, tasty and definitely we will make again and again. Second time I made it , I reduced the time to 10 minutes. We like it a little crisper, but it is still good at the longer time."

"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."

"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."
