Move the potatoes to one side of the dish before you add the asparagus so the spears can cook in a single, even layer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine 1 teaspoon oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt, thyme, peppers, and potatoes in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450º for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cheese and 1/2 teaspoon garlic.

Step 3

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Combine 1 teaspoon oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic, and asparagus. Add asparagus mixture to dish. Bake for 10 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender.

This was great. I only made the potatoes but they were perfect.

Great recipe! This was delicious, and it was nice to have both side dishes cook in the oven together. I omitted the red pepper because we were serving this to several children and quadrupled it to serve a crowd. Next time I may let the potatoes cook a little longer, so they get crispier.

This recipe is great; I've made it a number of times. Instead of asparagus (which is very seasonal), I use baby carrots instead. The potatoes and carrots go so well together, and everyone I've made it for loves it! Normally I don't rate/review recipes, but this one has made such a good impression on me that I had to rate.

This was really yummy and easy. Both the hubby and I really enjoyed it and it was very simple to make. Asparagus was perfectly crisp-tender.

Delicious and very easy. I doubled the asparagus and added an extra teaspoon of oil.

LOVE THIS!! One of my favorite sides. We sometimes use green beans instead of the asparagus. If you're not a fan of spicy though, you may want to cut back on the red pepper. (I think it's just right, but I know a few people who think it's too hot.)
