It was a great change to my typical aspargus dish. Great taste and went very well with our steak!

I was looking for a new way to fix asparagus and came across this recipe. This has become a family favorite-we can't have it too often! The only changes are that I make it into more of a salad by breaking the asparagus into small (approx. 1") pieces and dicing the roasted red peppers. I use all the same ingredients, with a homemade Italian dressing. We use lots of garlic (I used dried minced), too, and fresh-grated parmesan gives it a wonderful flavor. Thanks for posting!
