Very good! Used sage instead of basil because I didn't have any, but still worked.
Loved this recipe...I did add a little fresh oregano to it...Great way to serve 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 ingredients...you 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.
I love asparagus and I loved this. A really easy and nice way to dress up asparagus. NO LEFTOVERS!! Made for ZWT III
I loved this, a simple recipe, easy to prepare with excellent honest, fresh flavors of the food. A perfect side dish for so many meals. I will be making this again! Thank you. ZWT3
Great recipe! Fast too! I simply blanched the asparagus, beautiful green, and then added to the tomato, shallot, garlic and basil mixture. How nice....this was. Refreshing on a hot day, and the taste was as fresh as Spring.
This is a simple and elegant way to serve fresh asparagus. I cooked the asparagus in the microwave until crisp tender and proceeded with recipe as specified. The fresh basil really adds the crowning touch.
You are sooooo right, Kate. "So simple, so easy--and such good flavors." The asparagus was young and so tender; the combination of red roma, and green asparagus, added to the flavour. All was consumed by 11 eager, Easter dinner guests. My sister copied the entire menu and printed a copy for everyone. Dinner was an adventure, your Asparagus Provencal one of the highlights.... Thank you Kate for sharing,
