Easy to prepare but I wouldn't cook the asparagus for quite as long and I'm not sure that the tomatoes added anything but colour to the dish. I thought that the flavour lacked a little something even though I used the best ingredients . I will try making it again but without the tomatoes and using a little chorizo and some chopped peppers.

Very average needs stronger flavours

We really enjoyed the flavour combination and so simplistic. Needs seasoning which isn't mentioned and the asparagus don't need as long as indicated unless you have very fat ones! I added a little bit more balasamic too, to prevent the veg drying out. Will certainly eat it again

Lovely, easy Valentines dish. Forgot the basil (too many cocktails!) but still came out a treat.

Quality meal, and very very easy to make. I sprinkled a bit of mixed herbs in with the olive oil and a bit of fish seasoning...quality

Lovely. Really delicious. I was a bit more liberal with the balsamic than the recipe states, as we love it!

Yummy, used lemon juice instead of vinegar and worked a treat.

Deliciously tasty! So easy to do and more filling than it looks. Will definitely cook this again and maybe add some more veg to the pot, possibly some squash.

I love this recipe, it couldn't be easier and is so flavourful! You can change the herbs you use to switch things up. I sometimes use tarragon or thyme instead of basil.

I made this for dinner as a treat and made the amount for 2 people but ate it all myself!
I seem to be a roasting fanatic these days, so it's nice to add another simple recipe to my folder.
Tasted delicious and not much washing up!

A really delicious meal. I loved how light and healthy this was, with beautiful natural flavours. I added whole peeled shallots, but I think next time (I'll definitely be doing this again!) I'd try adding garlic and lemon wedges. Squash some of the tomatoes a bit when you take it out of the oven to use as sauce... this is so good.
