Posted for Dee so she can find it when asparagus is in season! :) Found in an online search. Prep & serving times are guess-timates.

I loved this for the simplicity of the recipe. Very quick to make with tinned asparagus although I'm sure the flavour would be even better with fresh. I wanted something quick and making a three-serving recipe with a tin of asparagus worked just great. Made two big bowlfuls. I will definitely try again with fresh.
