So simple, so easy--and such good flavors. Delicious with a crisp rose. The fifteen minutes of prep is for boiling water and blanching the asparagus.

Lovely, fresh flavors. We added some green beans because we only had about half a pound of asparagus. We also used sweet cherry tomatoes rather than romas simply b/c they were in season here. Light, flavorful and yummy!

This was EXCELLENT! More than restaurant quality. If you love the won't be able to help but love this. I had a lot of very nice ripe sweet tomatoes available when I made this recipe so I ended up using about 8 tomatoes in this recipe (you can use as many as you want and I don't think it would hinder this recipe at all) and I increased the shallots and garlic. The fresh basil was perfect for this. I think even an asparagus hater couldn't help but love this because asparagus wasn't the overwhelming flavor in this. It was a nice blend of all ingredients. This was really great and will be a staple in my house.
