I love roasting vegetables and this recipe is a keeper/repeater. It's incredibly easy but full of flavor.

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.

Excellent! I forgot about the sesame seeds, but didn't miss them.

This was SO good, I never roasted veggies before and had to make another batch it went so quick, I will be trying this with other veggies now I know how good roasting tastes.

Davulous. Didn't have olive oil so I used 2 tablespoons of butter. Will definitely make again.

This is my favourite way to eat asparagus. So simple, yet so delicious!

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.
