The concept was good, but I do have some criticism of this recipe. Suffice it to say olive oil is a better option than cooking spray, fresh minced garlic preferable to garlic salt, and the Parmesan tossed with the asparagus before roasting rather than sprinkling it on afterward much tastier. I found 10 minutes was adequate, and didn't bother turning it mid-way. A little drizzle of fresh lemon juice and a light sprinkle of grated lemon zest make this particularly fresh and lively. Small changes easily elevate this to a 5-star rating.
Roasted asparagus is always a winner! I increased the temp to 450 when I realized I'd overestimated how much time I head before the rest of dinner was ready. As I was cooking this while camping, I also simply shook parm from the can on, rather than measuring a T. No complaints here; thanks for the recipe, Zerkovich!
A good recipe, however, you may want to kick up the amount of seasonings to add the necessary flavor. Instead of garlic salt, I used 3 cloves of minced garlic and a dash of sea salt. Also, I used olive oil instead of cooking spray. Olive oil doesn't have the chemicals found in cooking spray. Finally, I added diced red onions and sliced mushrooms to the asparagus before baking everything. This side dish was great with my baked salmon and white rice. The soft red onions and mushrooms oozed into the white rice which added flavor to the rice.
No I didn't change anything. I had never cooked asparagus before. I and my family loved it. You don't know how it burns me up to see people critize a recipe then change it. If you know so much why bother looking for a recipe?
So yummy! I brushed them with olive oil and used fresh minced garlic and fresh grated Parmesan. I think this is the only way we will ever eat asparagus again! I also like to add sliced mushrooms if I have any. Yum!
I took the suggestions of others...I used olive oil...drizzled it on...and put on some chopped fresh garlic...I also spinkled a little garlic pepper salt...cooked on 400...6 minutes...then turned them...cooked another 6 minutes. Other than the fire alarm going off (why I'm not sure!) they came out delicious!! I will be making these again...and again...and again!
