    muncheechee's Note:

    From Weight Watchers' Five Ingredient Fifteen Minute cookbook (Spring 2008). The recipe calls for boiling the asparagus but really you should cook the asparagus by your preferred method. I prefer to saute my asparagus in a little olive oil and sea salt. Enjoy :)

      This was fantastic! I would rate this 10 stars if I could. I made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a big hit. There were leftovers which I heated in the microwave tonight and it was still excellent. I added sliced almonds as a garnish. Thanks muncheechee for posting. This is a keeper.
