"Grilling seems to bring out the sweetness in veggies. This recipe is from Chatelaine Food Express Quickies. The quantities aren't important. Simply cook as much as you need or have room for on your barbeque grill. I like to use a grill basket when grilling most vegetables so that I don't loose any veggies to the fire."

Asparagus has been so cheap lately, that I am trying every recipe I And may I say "This is one of the best", so easy and so delicious. The asparagus is just so wonderful cooked this way. Whoever said "The simple things in life are often the best", must have made this recipe, because this recipe is "Simplicity at it's best"!

This was quick, easy and worked out great for us. I also added garlic powder to the seasoning. Make for Summer Vacation: Stockton.

Very easy recipe that has tasty results. I broiled the asparagus and because I have a new stove I overcooked them just 1 minute but they were still delicious. I used Crazy Salt instead of regular. A do again recipe for sure.16 June 12 Made again and enjoyed just as much. 29 May 2013 Made again came out perfect 400F for 8 minutes So simple and so good Thanks Dreamer
