    Gadgetsmidnight's Note:

    What I love about this recipe is the ease of preparation. The asparagus comes out still crisp. To make things easier I use a Tupperware microwave steamer and I have a gadget called "Misto" that you put olive oil in to mist your foods. Cooking time includes standing time.

      This is good and easy to make. I didn't add the oil but just sprinkled it with season salt. We all enjoyed this.

      Better than french fries! The best 'recipes' are so simple - used roasted garlic olive oil.

      This was pretty good. I usually sprinkle about a half teaspoon of sugar and then a couple of teaspoons of butter before microwaving. I think mines a little better. However if you are trying to cut down on trans fat etc. this would be a great substitute. Made for PAC Fall 2012.
