extra virgin olive oil
garlic, thinly sliced

I always follow the recipe exactly the 1st time. Until now... I didn't have any thyme so I omitted that. I poured 2 tbs. oil in the glass dish, added potatoes, garlic and red bell pepper and cooked covered for 30 mins. Then I added the asparagus and cooked covered for 5 mins. & uncovered for 5 more. Delicious!
I was skeptical at the huge amount of rosemary and thyme, but I always follow recipes to the T when I first try them. After eating what we could of this, my girlfriend and I felt like we had eaten a bowl of rosemary and parsley. It was barely palatable. I almost wonder if it's a misprint - perhaps 1/4-tsp. of each (instead of FOUR) would be better.
Wonderful! I followed other suggestions and cooked potatoes at 425 for 30 min covered, then 5 covered with asparagus and 5 more uncovered. The asparagus turned out perfectly. I also added raw onions to the potatoes, and everything turned out great! This will definitely be my go-to roasted potato recipe. Thanks!
Please make sure you like the taste of rosemary before trying this recipe as written. I like the herb in small amounts but I found the rosemary overwhelming in this dish, and ended up throwing most of it away. I'm still giving it 2 stars for the basic concept. I'm sure I would have liked this much better with different seasonings.
So simple and so delicious. I did have to extend the cooking time... the potatoes just wouldn't cook through. I ended up overcooking the asparagus a tad. Next time I will chop the potatoes into smaller pieces.
these are very tasty! make sure to not add the asparagus until the last 5-10 mins, otherwise it will definitely be overdone. i also sometimes add peppers, onions, or whatever veggies you like!
This was a very easy and flavorful recipe. The only thing I changed was cutting the herbs in half, and using 1/4 tsp of salt total. It would have been way too herby and salty as written. Great compliment to chicken and green salad.
Great combination. Potatoes were good but the asparagus was over cooked. 10 - 15 minutes total cooking time for the asparagus is probably long enough. Also would leave the asparagus spears whole next time.
