I saw this on a Rachel Ray episode on Food Network and thought I'd give it a try. I really enjoyed it. I made one change by adding the balsamic vinegar.

What's not to like? Really enjoyed the blending of flavors. The onions were a nice addition. Made for PAC Spring 2012.

I would've never thought to add Dijon mustard to sparrow-grass, but this was mighty good! Didn't change a thing....and was glad to have it on my plate! *My Three Chefs 08 - Sparrow Guts!*
