It's that time of year again for enjoying fresh asparagus! I'm so glad I started with this recipe! This was so delicious and very easy to prepare! It looked so nice on the table I couldn't wait to eat! the feta and red onion make nice additions to the great dish! Thanks for sharing, Nez!

This is a true 5 star recipe. We loved it. I steamed the asparagus for about 4 minutes - still crunchy, cooked the onions very slowly until they were golden. I used cubed herb feta. A very lovely way to serve asparagus. Definitely a do again recipe

We loved this! I used goat cheese instead of Feta as that is all I time I think I will saute the onions first...
