We love roasted asparagus. I don't know if the initial steaming (blanching) is really necessary. We like our asparagus on the crisp side though.

I did not bother messing with the steam step. I just layered the asparagus on the baking sheet and followed the rest of the instructions as listed. I did add a sprinkling of salt. I did bake mine just a touch longer--almost 15 minutes. Pretty good. No leftovers--what my family did not eat, I did.

Delicious! Only thing I did was add the lemon juice before baking, because I like my asparagus green. Other than that, this one's a keeper!
