Quick & easy - a great way to cook thin asparagus!

Top Review by mom2alexjake

YUMMM!!! I made this last night, and I am going to make it AGAIN tonight! I let my dad try some, since he eats a ton of veggies. He's diabetic and gets bored with the same old tastes, and he LOVED this one for something different. He suggested cutting the stalks into bite sized pieces so they are easier to eat and will be easier to cook, too. THANK YOU for a wonderful idea!!
