This was just sooo good and so easy. I'm so happy to have another terrific recipe from I went easy on the red pepper flakes, next time I'll use more, and I will definitely be making this many times more - my 2 favorite vegetables, just so tasty! We had it as a side with stroganoff this time. Just delicious.

Simply crunchy and fresh with a nice heat! Very quick to make. Would be great as an appetizer for dipping. Leftovers are going into a quiche. Thanks

Another asparagus treat that is out of this world! Asparagus, fresh snow peas, and hot peppers my absolute fav. This was so quick and yummy, I broke off the ends of asparagus, cleaned up the snow peas a bit, put them both in a searing, I mean searing hot pan that had a spot of olive oil. Flash cooked em' so it reserved their shape as well as the beautiful green color. The crispness was terrific, and since I had a bit of mushrooms that needed to be used, I tossed in those too. Oh asparagus oh how I do love thee. Thank you Beautiful BC, just outstanding, another winner by you!
