    Ditterbug's Note:

    This is by far my favorite asaparagus recipe. It's a great holiday side dish, or perfect for any meal because it's so quick and easy. My best advice is to pick thin asparagus stalks, as the thicker ones are often bitter and don't cook as well. Take care not to burn the garlic -the idea is to lightly toast it.

      This is now my favorite way to eat asparagus, too! As a huge garlic lover, I was in heaven. The asparagus was nicely buttered and cooked just right (not too soft), about 4-5 min. total. The toasted garlic slivers were absolutely delicious paired with the asparagus. I wouldn't change a thing to this recipe. Simple and perfect! ~Made for Spring 2009 Pick-A-Chef~
