    Very tasty. Thanks.  -  12 Jun 2016


    I was skeptical at the huge amount of rosemary and thyme, but I always follow recipes to the T when I first try them. After eating what we could of this, my girlfriend and I felt like we had eaten a bowl of rosemary and parsley. It was barely palatable. I almost wonder if it's a misprint - perhaps 1/4-tsp. of each (instead of FOUR) would be better.  -  20 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I always follow the recipe exactly the 1st time. Until now... I didn't have any thyme so I omitted that. I poured 2 tbs. oil in the glass dish, added potatoes, garlic and red bell pepper and cooked covered for 30 mins. Then I added the asparagus and cooked covered for 5 mins. & uncovered for 5 more. Delicious!  -  30 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
