I found this recipe in a Cooking Light magazine; it differs from some of the other Cooking Light recipes in that there is no oil and fewer ingredients. It is a very simple and delicious way to prepare asparagas.

Wow!!! I don't give to many 5 stars to vegetables, but this one certainly deserved it! I love roasted veggies and this recipe couldn't have got any easier. We had friends come over at the last minute and this recipe came to the rescue! I will definately remember this one when I get into the same jam the next time!!! Good find!!!

Well...a strange thing happened and I ended up cooking brussel sprouts in place of asparagus as mine were frozen in my fridge vegetable bin. However the method of roasting then combining with the sauce was still delicious. Cant wait to get some more asparagus and try as intended.
