This dish turned out very well even though the power went out while baking and I finished it on the gas stove top. The frying pan produced small chunks of fried Parmesan which was a treat as well.

The concept was good, but I do have some criticism of this recipe. Suffice it to say olive oil is a better option than cooking spray, fresh minced garlic preferable to garlic salt, and the Parmesan tossed with the asparagus before roasting rather than sprinkling it on afterward much tastier. I found 10 minutes was adequate, and didn't bother turning it mid-way. A little drizzle of fresh lemon juice and a light sprinkle of grated lemon zest make this particularly fresh and lively. Small changes easily elevate this to a 5-star rating.

Roasted asparagus is always a winner! I increased the temp to 450 when I realized I'd overestimated how much time I head before the rest of dinner was ready. As I was cooking this while camping, I also simply shook parm from the can on, rather than measuring a T. No complaints here; thanks for the recipe, Zerkovich!

A good recipe, however, you may want to kick up the amount of seasonings to add the necessary flavor. Instead of garlic salt, I used 3 cloves of minced garlic and a dash of sea salt. Also, I used olive oil instead of cooking spray. Olive oil doesn't have the chemicals found in cooking spray. Finally, I added diced red onions and sliced mushrooms to the asparagus before baking everything. This side dish was great with my baked salmon and white rice. The soft red onions and mushrooms oozed into the white rice which added flavor to the rice.

Hard to mess this one up. Simple and delicious. If you want to kick it up a bit, try a bit of greek seasoning or maybe Slap Your Mama seasoning. :)

So yummy! I brushed them with olive oil and used fresh minced garlic and fresh grated Parmesan. I think this is the only way we will ever eat asparagus again! I also like to add sliced mushrooms if I have any. Yum!

Delicious! And what is more, the family liked it too! I didn't think I could get everyone to eat asparagus, but this is always a hit, and so easy!
