      I thought this was good, but others couldn't stop raving about it. I made it for Easter dinner yesterday at my in-laws and there were 42 people there (so I scaled the recipe to 10 lbs.) It was great to prep in advance, but the parmesan butter was more like a sauce than a coating which I had thought. I gave 4 stars because of the raves I got.

      Everyone thought it was great! Made this for St. Patrick's day and the asparagus went well with the corned beef & potatoes. Will definately be making it again! Thank you for providing me with my new favorite way to make asparagus!
