Reviews forOven-Baked Asparagus
"It's a great way to get your asparagus cooked for OTHER RECIPES that call for it. I added it to soups already cooked like this and it worked out perfectly. And it's good just as it is with butter. A versatile recipe!"
"Very good and easily roasts along with other items in the oven i.e. chicken"
