Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

instead of olive oil, I use spray butter flavored pam so I get the taste of butter without added calories and not the greasiness of olive oil... add a bit of onion and garlic powder too... love it
The first time I made this, I made it per the recipe and salted it on the baking sheet, but it turned out so salty because I kept shaking the asparagus and getting more salt on it. The last time I salted it when I tossed it in the olive oil. Turned out great. Hubby wants me to make it again!!
I make this but omit salt and sprinkle with more spices.
I made this but eliminated the salt and added 1 tablespoon of Balsic vinegar for taste . It was really good. The asparagus was not muchyat all.
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
I use sea salt and lemon pepper. It's a great flavor combination.
I added a sprinkle of zesty herbs, instead of salt.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
