These are soooo good, could just be my favorite way to do asparagus from now on. The flavor of the asparagus really shines through and the colors are so bright and nice. Wonderful side in the Spring when asparagus it at it's prime. So easy and feels like Spring. Made in memory of PapaD
Nice asparagus dish! I sliced my asparagus on the diagonal and made the recipe as directed. Simple and good. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic too. Thanks Papa D for a nice keeper side. Made for Photo Tag.
