Absolutely delicious. I was very skeptical about the lack of a lot of seasonings and stuff, but I'm SO glad I didn't add anything. The recipe was perfet as written. The taste was light and delicate, as well as satisfying and flavorful. Thanks!
This was great; fast, extremely easy and very good.
I'm the non-cook in the family and this was a winner for me as well. It's easy to prepare, is very tasty, and my husband (who likes asparagus mushy out of a can) said he would be in favor of me making this again.
