I really enjoyed this. I didn't have any herbes de Provence but I looked it up and saw that it's mostly thyme basil and rosemary so I shook some of each in a big ziplock bag with the salt pepper and olive oil then put in the asparagus and turned the bag over several times to coat. Quick easy and tasty. Read More

This was on the edge of bitter. I had no "herbes de provence" but used a small amount of each of the ones normally found in that blend - it was a different way of fixing asparagus though. Read More

Perfect as written right down to the roasting time which was just right at 12 minutes. Herbes de Provence is something I never would have thought of for asparagus and it worked nicely. This was a great side dish for our "spring meal" of blackened tilapia garlic dill new potatoes and chickpea salad. Read More

Excellent and easy way to prepare fresh asparagus! Instead of messing up a bowl to toss the olive oil and herbs with the vegetable I just brushed on the oil and shook on some herbs de provence. I will make this recipe again! Read More

This was a great way to fix asparagus! I didn't have Herbes de Provence so I used 1 t thyme 1 t sage and 1 t rosemary. Everyone loved it! It works great with Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin from this website. Read More

Beautiful crisp tender asparagus. Lavender is a prominent flavor in my Herbes de Provence so I've learned from past experience to use it sparingly. I halved the Herbes amount; though strong with lavender the overall taste was pleasant elegantly different from the many other usual asparagus preparations. I encourage everyone to try this at least once. Read More

I just munched my way through half a bunch of roasted asparagus. It was delicious and so easy! My favorite kind of recipe. Thanks. P.S. I agree that the bowl wasn't necessary; I just placed the asparagus drizzled and sprinkled and stuck it in the oven. Read More
