Rosemary Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

Showcase asparagus when you dress it in fresh rosemary and red potatoes for an earthy counterpoint to the fresh, green spears. Add minced garlic and you get a gorgeous, flavorful side dish. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    If you follow this recipe you will end up with bitter little black chunks of garlic. Obviously poster never made this recipe...

    I have two large rosemary bushes so am always looking for ways to use it. This recipe is tasty and so easy. My husband loved it. I will try it next time using green beans.

    Used fresh green beans as I didn't have asparagus and cooked together with the potatoes. Really good and easy.

    Really good. I used parchment paper so the mess was minimal and I cooked the asparagus about 12 minutes. I also used baby potatoes - white, red and purple.

    So much flavor from such simple ingredients. I cut up the asparagus and did the same with the plain old white potatoes. I cut the potatoes into smaller pieces and gave them a jump start of baking. I gave them about 15 minutes. Then added the cut up asparagus and at that time I added some minced garlic. The aroma from the Rosemary was wonderful and so was the taste. Perfect side for our grilled Salmon.JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor. I highly endorse this recipe for both taste and ease of preparation. Presentation is nice too *

    Salt is not even close to being right.. and cooking times for each state is a total fail.. I corrected them and its delicious but this isnt a well written recipe.

    This is a great way to get 2 veggies done on one pan! I made the recipe as written with the exception of adding more salt, including to the mixture before baking it. I usually only cook asparagus for 10 or so minutes at 400, not 15-20, so my asparagus was perfectly cooked. Attractive presentation and great mixtures of colors and flavors!

    Simply wonderful ! My family loved it. Great way to spruce up asparagus and it is a perfect accompaniment to roasted salmon or a steak. Thank you!
