Delicious!!! Didn’t have pine nuts, so used sliced almonds instead. Thank you!

Delightful! Everyone loved it. My crew needs garlic so I make 2 batches, 1 as written and 1 with garlic and roma tomatoes. I have a few that do not care for grape or cherry variety tomatoes. So easy too. Thanks!

Tried this even though I didn't have the tomatoes or pine nuts and it was very good and easy. Will definitely make again. Green beans make a good alternative.

I made this for a side dish this weekend and I just loved it !!! Very easy, pretty and I just loved the pine nuts ! I will definitely make again, although I thought the asparagus was very crunchy . I will cook a little longer next time.

I enjoyed this delectable recipe for asparagus a while ago. I love the combination of colors and textures in this dish. It's definitely a great recipe to wow your guests! It's a keeper!I made another batch of this recipe using very thin asparagus. Instead of roasting them, I cut them into segments and stir fried them. It was just as wonderful!!

I prepared this delicious dish tonight and we loved it. It is an easy recipe and cooked along with my meat loaf. I followed the directions except I omitted the grated lemon peel since I did not have any. We will be having this again. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

I ADORE this recipe! I've made it several times and get cravings for it. I simply sub out vegan Parmesan for the dairy kind and it's a fantastic vegan dish.

I really enjoyed this recipe for many reasons. It was quite easy to make, delicious, beautiful presentation and one that I am sharing with my special friends that I consider are gourmet cooks. My only problem with this recipe is that it is so good that it would only serve 4 people. I am enjoying many recipes on this web site but this has been the best recipe so far.I give it 5 stars
