Wow! Easy but looks impressive when served and the flavor...wow. I tried to take a shortcut the second time I made this and pour the oil and spices over the asparagus rather than tossing - bad idea! Having everything very coated is important to proper cooking. Silly move, I know, but figured I'd put it out there in case others get tempted :)

My wife and I found this about a year ago one of the best asparagus EVER! We use a zipper bag to really coat the asparagus. Also, try broiling for the last 1-2 min or feta browns mmmmmmmm.

Absolutely yummy! I could just about live on this stuff. I left out the parsley (subbed basil but only about a teaspoon) and the red pepper. Everyone scarfed it up. It is now the veggie dish most requested at my house. The only problem with this is that so often market asparagus is overgrown and tough so it's only good when the asparagus is. I absolutely loved the taste, so tried the same recipe for the infused oil and feta with sliced tomato under the broiler for just a few minutes. That is delicious too!

This was good, but if I tried it again, I would probably opt for a different cheese, maybe goat? ..something that would get a bit more melted.

This was absolutely delicious! Wouldn't change a thing. If your asparagus is a bit on the thick side - just bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. The infusion of the garlic, red pepper, lemon zest, etc was incredibly aromatic and tasty!

I love this recipe :) I have to admit that I usually take the lazy way out and just toss the asparagus in olive oil, sprinkle a little bit of gray sea salt then sprinkle the feta on top. I also throw in a handful of grape tomatoes. Absolutely delicious!! Thank you for sharing :)

I halved the recipe (was cooking for two) and followed the instructions exactly and it was delicious! This was my first time making asparagus at home. I heated the oil and seasonings in a frying pan to make it easier to toss the asparagus with some tongs.

This was absolutely delicious. On the next day, I served the leftovers cold with marinated mushrooms - made a scruptious salad.
