There is nothing like fresh asparagus and I am extremely spoiled because my parents grow it on their farm!

Great veggie recipe! Fresh, easy to make and tasty. There was just enough sauce to add a nice flavor without being overpowering. Served this as a side dish but I think it could stand on it's own as a meatless main dish over rice or pasta. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
