I tried asparagus (from a can) a few years ago and swore I would never eat it again! I am trying to eat healthier and learned of the stress-relieving benefits of asparagus. I "Googled" and found this recipe and I am soooo glad I did. This is absolutely YUMMY!!! I was "stealing" pieces of asparagus from the pan. Thank you, Tera H., for submitting this recipe! It's a keeper!!!

Delicious asparagus!! simple to put together, I steamed mine rather than boil it, kept it very crisp, then sprinkled the garlic salt and the cheese. I will be making this again , thanks for posting!
