"My preferred way of having asparagus is roasted in the oven, just long enough to keep it crunchy but tender. I have a set time I use, but if you use thicker asparagus or like it softer, adjust the cooking time to your taste."

I just made these last week and it was deelicious! I did add about 1/2 cup of grape tomatoes. I love how the popped in your mouth when you bit into them and they tasted great with the asparagus and feta cheese. The hot peppers lent a nice zip and the lemon and garlic just made it even better. What a great new recipe for us using asparagus!
