I loved this delicious low fat recipe! Full of flavor and really quick to make. The only thing I'd change is to throw the tips in a bit later than the rest of the asparagus. As made, I just pulled them out sooner! Didn't use the orange zest....just not a fan of it. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
