Nice appetizer or side dish

Top Review by WestWind

This was an incredibly easy way to prepare an wonderfully elegant side dish. I've never been able to cook Asparagus, but I've always wanted to incorporate it when cooking for a party. This is easy and shockingly flavorful way to make a visually appealing veggetable dish that everyone with enjoy. I overcooked my Asparagus a bit, and I wont make that mistake again.
