I used this recipe the first time I ever cooked asparagus, it was quick to make, simple ingredients and the whole family enjoyed it.
I must say this was a great recipe! Very quick and tasty. With all the hours of work, there is not alot of time to cook during the week. This was very quick.
Very easy and quick to make, tastes great and is low fat healthy too.
