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.

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.
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!
Lovely!! I had no cajun spice so I used garlic powder and seasoning salt. I ate the whole thing myself!
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.
The cajun spice takes away the flavor of the asparagus.
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.
Everybody loved this! I coated asparagus with olive oil like others suggested. nice and tender. i will definately make this again. thanks!
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.
Great recipe! I did add a little galic powder but I think you could probably sprinkle whatever you prefer and it would be grea! I snapped the ends off of the asparagus and put it a large ziploc bag,poured a little oil in the bag, sprinkled my seasonings in and shook it up. Just a little easier to get all of the ingredients mixed well. Pour it onto the pan and you're ready to go. Will definitely make it again, and again, and again.
My husband said this needed some garlic salt. Otherwise, very easy, good flavor.
I don't usually like asparagus all that much, but this was really good! And it's super easy.
We just adore this asparagus recipe, it's perfect. We don't buy Cajun seasoning, so we just use seasoning salt + cayenne pepper. It's always perfect every time - crisp and flavorful but never tough or chewy. 1 minute prep time + 10 minutes in the oven? You can't beat that!
Exactly my kind of recipe. I used Mrs Dash Herb & Garlic instead of cajun and it was a perfect compliment to the asparagus. I cut the asparagus into 1 1/2-2" pieces and tossed it with 1 tsp of olive oil and a sprinkle of the Mrs Dash. 10 min in the oven and perfection!
This was a nice change of pace from regular ol' steamed asparagus. And the cajun spice was different too. Easy and fast, thanks!
Very, very good. Easy. Will make again.
I'm always a fan of good microwave recipes, especially the simpler ones like this one. If you're not an admirer of wine, use some white grape juice, apple juice, or it will work with just water and maybe a splash of lemon juice. Also, don't feel bashful about adding seasonings to your taste -- like a sprinkle of garlic salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese, for instance. Also, keep in mind that the 3 minutes microwave time makes for a crunchy asparagus, so if you and your family like a softer aspargus just zap it a little longer. With the ease of the microwave, some of it can be made crunchy and some softer -- nothing could be more simple.
Have fixed this before, and my husband loves it. I use Zatarain's Creole Seasoning & Olive oil spray(just sprinkle over the top of the Asparagus)then toss to coat. It always turns out perfect! Thanks for such an easy recipe!!
This is my first time eating asparagus. I LOVED IT!
Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's a great jumping off point. I use a variation of this recipe at least once a week (as long as I can get fresh Asparagus). Here's what I do different: I don't use cooking spray, I use olive oil. I also don't use Cajun spices. I use garlic and just the tiniest bit of sea salt. It turns out delicious every time. Just a side note, sometimes Asparagus comes in thinner stalks, when that happens, I cut the cooking time down to half. For the thicker stalks, 15 minutes seems to be just about right.
I have never attempted asparagus prior to now, and I and my family found this to be delightful. I did however follow the advice of other reviewers and use olive oil in place of the non-stick cooking spray.
Excellent side dish, incredibly easy to prepare.
Simply perfect! Thanks.
I used a little evoo also. This was ok for something different but I won't be making it again.
really good, good with a little garlic salt instead of cajun (havn't tried cajun)
This is such a good idea and I loved how fast it was to make! I used olive oil instead of the spray (though I'll try it that way too) and my Cajun seasoning was Messina's, which is made in New Orleans and has been my favorite seasoning since I was 10. Unfortunately I couldn't taste the asparagus at all because I have a terrible cold, but my husband said it was really good and I believe him. Can't wait to try it again next time asparagus is on sale (and when my taste buds are working again).
Love this recipe as a great and quick easy asparagus dish. I do toss with a little EVO to coat the asparagus well before seasoning. Also if asparagus is thin I cook for a bit shorter than stated. My kids and husband love this! Thanks.
This is the very,very best way ever to cook asparagus. Having said that I must add that I drizzle it with olive oil and what ever seasoning goes with the menu.
this is so easy to prepare, and the result was delicious. I plan on using the technique in the future with different herbs and spices.
One word for this recipe.....FABULOSO!!!
Very good basic recipe. I like the speed in which it is made. I usually use olive oil but tried the cooking spray and used Emeril's Cajun seasoning. The asparagrus came out great. I can see many variations of this recipe. Will definitely make again.
Used 1/2 tsp of spice. Yum!
I made the pan fried version one night, and this oven version the next. I much prefered this recipe. I felt like it wasn't nearly as unhealthy and it had a perfect texture. You can definitely play with the spices to suit your tastes. Will keep in my recipes!
This was good, but too oily. I think I will use half the oil next time, as I like my asparagus a little crispy on the ends. I also substituted seasoned salt for Cajun seasoning and it had good flavor.
This is sooo good and sooo easy.
my stars are more for the process of cooking than the spices because I didn't have "cajun" seasoning. The asparagus was perfectly tender without being mushy or anything. So easy. I topped with salt and parm. cheese.
Another easy step to make something ordinary taste extraordinary! I used olive oil spray rather than the cooking spray (as it taste much better). Roasted about 10 minutes - perfection. Loved it!
Quick, easy and great tasting! We were looking for something different to do with asparagus and this was a good change. Although it's not terribly creative it is tasty. Added garlic powder and cayenne to fit our tastes. Will make again.
Better than I expected! This is how I will cook asparagus from now on!
Excellent and yummy - I rubbed mine with olive oil before seasoning
simple and quick. My go to recipe for asparagus
I made this recipe, and it was great! I used Olive Oil and cooked it a little bit longer so the tops were crispy but the rest amazingly tender and sweet!
This is the only way I will do asparagus from here on out...it is perfect! I did sprinkle it with a little parmesean when it was done. Thank you for this easy recipe! :o)
Had no idea you could asparagus this way! It was delish! I used Vegetable Magic by Chef Paul on the asparagus! I use it on all my vegetables and its great!
easy, fast, great tasting
I was prepared to love this, but this recipe has a lot of heat and not much flavor. My family was quite disappointed that I made this instead of my standard butter/garlic/Parmesan asparagus. Adding grated cheese made it a bit better and saved the dish from being thrown away.
Made this for dinner tonight. My husband is not a vegetable eater usually but tonight he ate a pound by himself!! Love the taste and how quickly it can be ready. This would be a great snack as well. Thanks!!
This was a very easy recipe!! I used various seasonings to see which ones my kids liked best (we aren't cajun fans). Thanks!
Very good and easy. I added some garlic salt but the top came off and made it a bit to salty but still very tasty.
This is fantastic! I followed other people's suggestions and added a little bit of olive oil before adding the cajun seasoning. SO GREAT! Thanks for sharing!
well, super easy, never thought it would be that good but it was. I have olive oil spray and just estimated the cajun seasoning. thanks
This was a big hit. I layed the asparagus out on parchment paper in a pan, sprinkled with Old Bay and baked for 10 minutes. I removed and sprinkled with an Italian cheese mixture and baked for an addition 3 minutes. Excellent. It don't get any simpler than this.
When I don't have Cajun seasoning, I use a combo of garlic salt and seasoned salt. Excellent!
I rubbed the asparagus in coconut oil, sprinkled with minced garlic and salt, baked at 425 for 13min... DELICIOUS! I could seriously munch on these instead of junk like potato chips. Only 4 stars because I didn't follow the recipe as written, thanks for the basics though!
Not bad! My hubs and I liked this a LOT! While I enjoyed the cooking method (I LOVE the simplicity of roasted veggies!), what my hubs enjoyed most was the spicy Cajun flavor. Ironically enough, I could not taste ANY spice whatsoever! I could tell our asparagus were well-seasoned, but that's about it. :) A GENEROUS dose of sea salt AND some fresh cracked pepper would have been just as good, IMHO. NOTE: DO NOT spray your asparagus with cooking spray! Instead, drizzle with EVOO (flavored is even better!) and then add a few cloves of crushed or minced garlic, a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese and / or a squeeze of fresh lemon juice - the possibilities are endless! Served alongside Hudson's tilapia with dill sauce, this was GREAT! Thanks for sharing, MSLILLY. :-)
Great recipe. Very easy, very fast, added a little kosher salt and followed the directions exactly. Thanks!!
Another great way to fix asparagus!
Am not into asparagus! but this so good that I may start cooking them more often! thank you!
I've made this a couple of times and followed the directions exactly each time. So easy, fast and delicious. Even my 5 year old eats it!
I love cooking asparagus this way now! I just used salt, pepper and garlic instead of cajun seasoning but the spears were to die for! Hubby thought so too!
I was told by my 16 yr old son... MOM you need to make LOTS AND LOTS of this NEXT time! I sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled Tony's more spice. YUM!!!
I couldn't believe how easy this was. I used Tony Chachere's. Tastes as good as grilled asparagus.
So good and like the recipe name, super fast! I usually steam my asparagus but roasting it with cajun seasoning gave it much more flavor. I coated the spears with olive oil spray and turned the spears halfway through. Thanks for the recipe!
Love This Recipe.....I will never steam Asparague again !!!!!!!
This recipe is fabulous as is.
Thank you for this easy recipe. I never really liked asparagus until I started fixing it this way. For my variation, I drizzle the asparagus with extra light tasting olive oil, and then did the cajun seasoning, sea salt, and cracked black pepper, and tossed all of that together, then dumped it onto the baking sheet. Came out great!!!
This recipe is the BEST asparagus dish I have come across. SO EASY, yet everyone I have served it to RAVES about it. Follow directions just as written for foul-proof results
I never really liked asparagus but for some reason made this anyway, and it's really yummy! I easily ate it all by myself though, so I definitely disagree that this is supposed to serve 3. I used a sheet of foil so there's basically no clean up. It's cheap and wildly easy so I'll definitely make again.
It was a little too spicy for me, but that is way I made it as a side dish to Picante Chicken for my husband. He loved it. Defiantly easy and quick a perfect side.
Easy and delicious!
I sprayed butter flavored spray and sprinkled creole seasoning and baked for 10 min....then I added 10 minced cloves of garlic and continued baking for another 10 min. I used a 400 degree setting to accommodate the oven setting i was using for a chicken pot pie, thus the longer cooking time....came out PERFECT! I ate the entire batch myself!
Excellent.. any spice works turns out awesome and super fast
Really yummy! The cajun spice made the asparagus as delicious as french fries.
Absolutely delish! I used olive oil in place of the non stick spray but followed the rest of the recipe. So easy and so worth it. Thanks for sharing.....
Tasty and fast! I accidentally over cooked it a bit - but it was still yummy. I brushed it with a little melted butter and added a sprinkle of garlic salt. Definitely will be making it again!
Very good & easy!
Wonderful. 8 minutes for medium asparagus. The asparagus were firm, tender and still beautifully green.
Very good dish, quick and easy to make, but don't over cook, best is slightly crunchy not mush.
Simple and tasty..
Easy, roasted exactly as the recipe called and it was perfect!
Awesome. I did not think I would like, but it was great.
Great and "superfast"! Thank You!!
This was my first time eating asparagus. Really good and very easy.
Fantastic!!!used 1 1/2 lbs london broil seasoned w/ steak seasoning.used 1 can tomato, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, but only half of the o-soup, added some canned mushrooms, red wine and one small minced onion.it took about 7 hrs in my crockpot---soooo good!!!after i took out meat, i added some cream to the gravy--because i'm german and thats what we do lol. served this with mashed potatoes as well as asparagus roasted in garlic and olive oil---this will be a staple in our house.planning on trying this w/ elk as well.
Very good. I think I added a couple minutes to the bake time.
Great idea! Very simple and less calories for you. Thanks for sharing!
Lower fAt thenwhat I use to do... Still great
This recipe was sooo simple. We don't ever eat asparagus in my family, so we were skeptic but everyone loved it! I rubbed the asparagus down with a little bit of olive oil first instead of spraying it. I will definitely make this again.
this is one of our staples at dinner.
super fast and super yummy! i also coated in olive oil and added some garlic powder to the seasoning. very very good! much easier than waiting on the steamer!
Shocked at how simple and delicous this is. That's my kind of recipe!
BEST Asparagus recipe ever! I bake them in olive oil (basted on) and sprinkle them with parmesan cheese or cajun or lemon pepper :) depending on my mood. My roomie loves his with sweet chili sauce on top!
I loved how fast and easy this was to make. My whole family loved it.
Awesome! Leaves the asaparagus with a nice crisp tender taste.
Super yummy recipe - who knew? I sprayed with olive oil to make it a bit more South Beach friendly, and my husband and I ate them up! Thanks!
This was a very fast, easy way to prepare asparagus. We were a little too "spiced out" with the cajun, so made it with season salt the next time we prepared it, and it was VERY good!
Very easy to make and delicious. Even my picky son likes it!
