      Very tasty & has all my favorite ingredients. I didn't have lemon rind so I used lemon pepper instead (& omitted white pepper) and it worked great. I started buying fresh parmesan & it makes a hugh difference in these type of recipes. Thanks for sharing.

      Wonderful, we really enjoyed this. We had neighbors over for dinner and this was a big hit...I used frozen asparagus with no problems....squirted a little lemon juice in also with lemon pepper and it was yummy...

      This is delicious. I used frozen asparagus, which worked out fine. Also, I skipped the parmesan...definitely does not need it. There is plenty of good taste and flavor without it.
