  • “This was fast and easy to make so I will give it 4 stars, but it was a little bland.I put a little extra bouillon in it to give it more taste.It would probably taste good with rice or small pasta in it.”

  • “I didn’t have fresh aspargus, but had a jar. It was wonderful. I will try again with fresh. Thanks for sharing”

  • “Najwa,I thought this sounded good,but it just was not to my taste.It was kind of bland,it lacked something.Sorry,Darlene”

  • “Excellent!This recipe is definitely one that I’ll be making again!The basil complements the asparagus beautifully.I have an electric oven, so very often I find that I need to have everything cook a few minutes longer.With this recipe, that wasn’t the case; it turned out just perfectly!I love garlic, so I added a few extra cloves with the potatoes, then just added the final 2 cloves with the asparagus, as directed.Thanks so much for posting this one — it’s a keeper in my house! :)”
