Yummy, Yum, Yum I really enjoyed this. I served this with Chia's Recipe#108155 it was delicious. A very simple yet lovely way to prepare asparagus. I am all with you Chia thick stalks all the way so much tastier and pesonally I think more appealing to the eye. Will be making again thanks for posting
