Not sure how such a simple recipe could be so good, but it really is. The sesame seeds sure added a lot.

This is a quick easy recipe that we loved. Only 4 ingredients but the asparagus was delicious. An easy, uncomplicated recipe. Sometimes those are the best kind. I highly recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor

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.
