Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I used my misto bottle to spray with olive oil to reduce the fat a bit. I Used garlic powder and pepper versus salt and pepper. Quick, Easy, healthy, and flavorful. I will definitely make again, it is a great week night veggie Submitted by:

I do this all the time or I coat it with evoo, salt pepper to taste & grill or roll around in a frying pan until it turns a bright green & is tender crisp, about 5 to 10 minutes depending on the asparagus. I love fresh asparagus! Submitted by:

How does cooking olive oil in a recipe work? Looking at the nutritional value, it is usually around 120 calories a tablespoon. Should we figure that the calories cook out? I see that this entire recipe with olive oil and the asparagus is only 57 calories. Submitted by:

Dump a container of cherry or grape tomatoes on the tray. Spread 'em all out and THEN drizzle some EVOO. They don't need to be coated! WHEN THE TOMATOES BURST, everything is done! I use garlic-salt, pepper, and some rosemary. So Tasty! Submitted by:

I make this outside on the grill. Only I use olive oil spray, lower fat grams. I'm gonna try this in the broiler. I love charded veggies cold on my salads too. Great instead of a meat. Submitted by:

I love asparagus and this is how I always prepare it w/ the modification of using Old Bay Seasoning instead of salt and pepper. I like the cajun kick. Submitted by:

I roast/bake my asparagus rather than broiling - 400 degrees. If you want to avoid salt, toss in the oil and a generous sprinkling of Mrs. Dash original flavour. Roast for at least 10 minutes. In my opinion, the toastier the asparagus, the more delicious. And I hate vegetables! Submitted by:

I put the oven on 42 and roast for 10 minutes. I also spray with pam olive oil and shake a spicy seasoning mix on top and then roast. Favorite way to make it and low in fat and sodium! Submitted by:

Too salty and too much pepper, but the idea is a good one. Next time I will try onion and garlic powder and use much less salt and black pepper. My sister liked it because it wasn't mushy. Submitted by:

1 teaspoon of salt for a bunch of 20 spears?! Are you kidding me??!! This salty recipe is only best for deer - not humans! This (salt) recipe (salt) is (salt) similar (salt) to (salt) this (salt) sentence (salt). IT HAS TOO MUCH SALT! Submitted by:
