    Very good and simple! I think I need to try it again and cook it a little less.

    This was SOOOO good and SOOOO simple!! I will definitely be making this again. One minor tweak is that I have to make sure to cook mine in the oven a little less than it stated because my asparagus was just a tad dried out. But that's not a big deal at all!

    I prepared this recipe tonight and declare it a winner. Not only easy but absolutely delicious. The asparagus had a delightful nutty flavor. When it came out of the oven, I sprinkle it with shredded Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. We will have this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor.
