  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Tip the potatoes and 1 tbsp of olive oil into an ovenproof dish, then roast the potatoes for 20 mins until starting to brown. Toss the asparagus in with the potatoes, then return to the oven for 15 mins.

We tried this last night and is was very tasty. We added a quartered red onion to the potatoes but did not have any basil so that was omitted. Nevertheless this will be a regular addition to our weekly meals.

Great! Very simple to do and tasty. I added courgettes with the asparagus and served with cauliflower cheese. Not much washing up to do either so rather happy with this recipe!

This is such an easy dinner to make. It is also very healthy and tasty. I use fry light instead of the oil as I am on slimming world, but it still takes fantastic.

ps need to change the cooking time on the recipe. 1 min is not near enough when you read the recipe. Oopps

Loved this. Might reduce the timing when the asparagus and tomatos go in as they were too well done for us even though my asparagus was chunky. Will definitely make this again and tweak it to suit us.

Quick and easy to make and very tasty, I used broccoli instead of asparagus and I also added a couple of garlic cloves in their skins with the potatoes to give extra flavour.

Clean plates and dish so this must have been good, plus no moaning about who was doing the washing up. Great for a mid week meal, but it is not something I would serve for a dinner party, as a bit too simple :O)

Quick easy meal, made after work with minimum fuss. Tasted so lovely and summery. Had it with some crusty bread to mop up all the gooey roast tomato/ vinegar juices. Delicious!

Delicious! As the asparagus season is over I made it with courgette and aubergine instead. The cherry tomatoes were very tasty. I shall make it again.

Delicious! I added garlic, a red chilli, courgette, carrot and shallots, leaving out the potatoes and tomatoes. Served with tomato couscous, it was very filling and simple to make.

Delicious! I added a clove of garlic and a red chilli, carrot and courgette and shallots, but didn't use tomatoes or potatoes. Served with tomato couscous, it was very filling and simple to make.

Got to say it tastes alot better than it sounds, honestly give it a go, you'll definitely be suprised. I made sweet and sour red onions to top off the salmon when it came out of the oven (recipe on this site)....delicious!

we found this a bit boring! sorry to disagree with others. Certainly quick and easy, but don't think I'll be making it again.

This is now one of our firm favourites. We made some lemon mayonnaise to go with it, delicious!
