    Raquel Grinnell's Note:

    From the Food52 website. This was soooo amazing the first time I made it that my husband ate the rest in the middle of the night - it was supposed to be my lunch the next day!!! How can you go wrong with asparagus, leeks, pancetta, garlic, orange zest, parsley and pine nuts. Savory, fresh, addictive!!

      This is very good. The addition of the orange zest makes it a bit different from other asparagus and garlic recipes, and just puts it over the top. Love the toasted pine nuts to. I served this with grilled shrimp and scallops, and the asparagus was a perfect complement. Thanks for sharing!

      This is my favorite asparagus recipe. I can't endorse it enough! People rave about it and it is easy to prepare and SO much more interesting than most preparations. It comes from the Food 52 cookbook and their title for it is "Absurdly Addictive Asparagus". Guaranteed not to disappoint. Especially good as a side dish for salmon.
