Great combination of asparagus and olives!!! For a change of pace, you can use carrots, eggplant or even zucchini instead of the asparagus.


  1. Trim tough stems from asparagus.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté garlic and olives in oil about 5 minutes.
  3. Add asparagus, salt, pepper and the water.
  4. Cover and cook over medium heat until asparagus is tender (3 to 5 minutes).

The only problem with this recipe is that I should have doubled it! It was delicious, pretty, and healthy. My dinner guests ate every single spear and olive.

I place the asparagus, garlic, oil and pepper in heavy duty foil and grilled 15 minutes to perfection. I left the olives whole. Made for ZWT 6 Thanks.

Very good. Not amazing, but they were what I expected. Very fresh tasting because the flavors of the olives didn't do too much. Made for ZWT6
