This was awesome!!! I've been cooking asparagus in olive oil and garlic, but it has been a little too oily for me. I followed the recipe by spraying it with olive oil spray and I sprinkled on Tony Chachere's creole seasoning. I baked it more than 10 minutes since we like our asparagus a little on the softer side. After about 13 minutes I put it in a small baking dish and finely grated some white sharp cheddar cheese on top. The oven was still warm so I popped it in and melted the cheese. It was GREAT!

Love this-Superfast is right-to make it faster-just line your baking sheet with aluminum foil. When cooked I put them in storage bags to take for lunch-they are great both warmed up or cold. Read More

I rubbed olive oil then the cajun seasonings... Really good flavor and very fast! Veggies are still firm and full of flavor. Who would have thought it to be this simple and tasty! Read More

Lovely!! I had no cajun spice so I used garlic powder and seasoning salt. I ate the whole thing myself! Read More

Simply excellent! Who would have thought? I sprayed with a little olive oil spray sprinkled with sea salt and roasted (along side pork tenderloins and red potatoes) for about 10 minutes. Perfect. Read More

Excellent but rather than cooking spray I used olive oil. I like roasted asparagus SO much better than just steaming it - it's more flavorful and also has a real robust look to it. This could be seasoned with any number of herbs and spices but Hubs and I really liked the Cajun seasoning - it was something I never would have thought to use with asparagus and it worked well. Ten minutes in the oven was perfect and freed me up to tend to other things while it was roasting. I garnished it with zested lemon which was the perfect complement. Were it not for the cooking spray called for I would have easily rated this 5-stars. Read More

I had to write a review for this because neither my eleven year old nor my husband really care for asparagus. Well, they ate these up. I did use Caribbean Jerk seasoning instead of Cajun. Absolutely fantastic. When an eleven year old requests asparagus again because "they tasted too good to be a vegetable" the recipe is a keeper! Thanks for the idea. Read More
