      Quick and delicious. Just my style. I used a large cast iron skillet and did need to use a touch of water when cooking the asparagus possibly due to the size of the stalk. The asparagus was crisp tender and full of flavor. I sprinkled lightly with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper before serving.
