    I find it easier just to brush a little olive oil on the spears instead of the zip-lock bag thing, but that's just me. It's a great recipe - especially if you are getting sick of steamimg everything. - 1/7/10

    Roasted vegies rock! Try this with brocolli & cauliflower. Can reduce oil by using a Misto or olive oil spray. - 9/16/08

  • I'm not sure what I did wrong, mine turned out very mushy. I tried leaving it longer but it never firmed up. I will try it again, maybe my asparagus wasn't as fresh as I thought? - 9/5/12

  • This sounds wonderful! I will try this tonight, I am used to steaming but only a short while. I like it to still be firm so I hope this won't cook it too much. - 7/11/11

  • Just made this and I have to say Thank you so much for posting this recipe :) It's amazing and from now on I will only have asparagus roasted. I made a honey dijon dressing and brushed it on after the asparagus were done but still hot. - 6/27/11
