      I really enjoyed this dish! I made for 2 servings but probably 3 servings worth of asparagus since I had a little more than needed left. I liked how easy it was and blended well together; even 1yr old DD liked it! Made for Football Pool 2013-14 Win.

      Made this for lunch today and thought it was tasty. I might actually cut back on the tomatoes a little next time as I thought they overpowered the dish somewhat (e.g., I couldn't detect the 4 cloves of garlic I put in). I thought this dish was easy to prepare. Thanks! Made for ZWT4.
