    I sauteed in butter, simple yet very nice.. the fresher the asparagus the better.  -  12 Aug 2012


    In a nutshell, this is way too much lemon and Parmesan for the amount of asparagus called for. With this amount of Parmesan you sure wouldn't need any salt! I prepared this using all ingredients to taste - very good, but easier just to roast it at 425 degrees for about 12 minutes - no muss, no fuss and delicious. I would suggest merely a drizzle of lemon juice and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Less is more.  -  06 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great recipe! I followed the recipe & the asparagus turned out perfect. Served with pork chops & everyone loved it. Will make often.  -  12 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
