I used a mix of potatoes mainly for more colorful photos. I tested the recipe using red potatoes which work just fine. I’d imagine Yukon golds would work too.

This recipe uses a long roasting time for the asparagus so fatter stalks hold up better. If you can only find thin stalks, you might want to reduce the roasting time.
