    AZPARZYCH's Note:

    Found online; posting for ZWT 7-Italy. *Updated 10/10/13-Finally made this and really enjoyed! I had very skinny asparagus so I should have decreased the cooking time. I used butter and drizzled a little olive oil on top too. I recommend using thicker asparagus or decrease cooking time.*

      Very tasty! I cooked this in the BBQ while I was also making Squished Baby Potatoes (Laura Calder) and To Die for Barbequed Ribs and it turned out very well. I like my asparagus with a little bite to it so I didn't cook it for as long as stated. This is a very simple and delicious asparagus recipe! Made for 1, 2, 3 recipe tag game. Thanks AZPARZYCH! :)

      I discovered that it's not necessary to boil the asparagus in advance.
      It's really much easier and the asparagus better because still "al dente" ( not to soft but just ready).
