Awesome asparagus dish! Very easy to prepare and so very tasty. You can really taste the lemon I added a tablespoon of the juice. Made for PAC spring 08' Thanks Gallopin Gael for posting.
Very nice, very easy and most importantly, the kids liked it too!
I was looking for a recipe that used pine nuts, and this one worked out great. The lemon and pine nuts go together very well. Be sure to eat quickly before the asparagus get cold!
