I guess I'm one of the few who prepared this as written--with the rosemary. I used a little less than called for, but it complemented the asparagus and mushrooms well and was a nice addition. Simple, easy, delicious, and makes for a beautiul presentation on the dinner plate.
What happens to the mushrooms? This recipe only suggests you roast the asparagus. Is there a typo or is she serious?
This was so easy. I put the asparagus and mushrooms on the cookie sheet then just poured the olive oil over them and tossed them with my hands. That way I didn't dirty up a bowl. Then I sprinkled it with chopped, dried rosemary and regular salt and it turned out great. Also, the asparagus really shrink up so it's okay if you have slightly more than a single layer of stalks. Just stir them halfway through the roasting.
Great recipe! I've made this several times. White mushrooms are good, portobellos are great. I've tried this with thick asparagus and found roasting for 15 minutes is good. But I tried pencil thin ones once, and 15 minutes was too long and they got burnt and mushy.
This was fabulous. I left off the rosemary because I just can't stand it, and used some minced garlic instead. We were so impressed with the way the tips of the asparagus got all delicious and crunchy! I've made it twice this week (asparagus was on sale), once with the mushrooms and once without. This is now my favorite way to cook asparagus!
I assumed the mushrooms were included in the roasting, after all they're combined in a bowl & drizzled w/ the oil, etc. Very good! I'd rate it PERFECT, just add a little common sense! Thanks for sharing it!
I used Baby Bella mushrooms, and I enjoyed the winning combination of asparagus & mushrooms. Although I love fresh rosemary and use it frequently, I found out today I don't care for it with asparagus--seems to make it bitter. However, I believe that is a personal preference, and this recipe is a good one. I used a little more olive oil. The recipe is perfect as to the portions and the roasting time; I'll try again with a different herb. Thanks leo67!
This recipe has been a family favorite for years, my recipe has some small changes: no salt, 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to coat well, crush rosemary with a mortor and pestel and roast 500 degrees for 10 minutes. The asparagus without the mushrooms are good too.
