MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2014

I made this a few weeks ago for a family gathering and it was a hit, even with those who aren't big veggie eaters. I like the fact that the asparagus is baked, and the preparation was simple. Great recipe!

Nothing needs to be changed with this meal. Absolutely perfect! My husband even went back for seconds!

I liked the idea of this, but wasn't crazy about the outcome. Seems like we simply prefer raosted asparagus on it's own.

Started out by following the recipe but now sometimes vary it somewhat. Still love it.
