"Tried this even though I didn't have the tomatoes or pine nuts and it was very good and easy. Will definitely make again. Green beans make a good alternative."

"I made this for a side dish this weekend and I just loved it !!! Very easy, pretty and I just loved the pine nuts ! I will definitely make again, although I thought the asparagus was very crunchy . I will cook a little longer next time."

"I enjoyed this delectable recipe for asparagus a while ago. I love the combination of colors and textures in this dish. It's definitely a great recipe to wow your guests! It's a keeper!

I made another batch of this recipe using very thin asparagus. Instead of roasting them, I cut them into segments and stir fried them. It was just as wonderful!!"

"I prepared this delicious dish tonight and we loved it. It is an easy recipe and cooked along with my meat loaf. I followed the directions except I omitted the grated lemon peel since I did not have any. We will be having this again. I highly recommend this recipe.

"I ADORE this recipe! I've made it several times and get cravings for it. I simply sub out vegan Parmesan for the dairy kind and it's a fantastic vegan dish."

"I really enjoyed this recipe for many reasons. It was quite easy to make, delicious, beautiful presentation and one that I am sharing with my special friends that I consider are gourmet cooks. My only problem with this recipe is that it is so good that it would only serve 4 people. I am enjoying many recipes on this web site but this has been the best recipe so far.

I give it 5 stars"

"I cannot rave enough about this recipe! It is so simple, and just so amazing. I didn't have pine nuts so I made without, and it was still delicious. I ate the leftovers cold the next day, right out of the fridge. I can't believe there were even any leftovers! This will be a regular part of my side-dish rotation."
