OMG to-die-for!! Really? It greatly upsets me that I hadn't found this recipe sooner... and SAGE?! I never knew just how tasty it was until now! My new favorite herb, and this recipe does it wonders!!

This recipe single handedly taught me to like asparagus. I can't do without it now. Even buy it off season and use rubbed sage. I don't use quite as much sage though. TY TY TY

This was wonderful! I stirred the juice of one lemon (I did not measure the juice) into the sage-butter until it became creamy. We had this with our friends from Canada, and we all loved it. We used a pound and a half of asparagus, and there was none left over! This was a very simple recipe. We will have this many times while asparagus is in season. Last night my husband and I had this again. My, my! We ate a whole pound of asparagus! This is just my favorite way to cook asparagus.

This is a delicious way to prepare fresh asparagus. I misted the asparagus with olive oil and then lightly sprinkled with coarse salt. The asparagus was young and tender and done in the 5 minutes specified. The combination of sage and lemon makes a very refreshing taste sensation.

This was the best asparagus that I have ever had and I do not like asparagus. I was a little leary about the 30 sage leaves but I used them and did not change the recipe one bit. You needed the 30 sage leaves as they shrink when cooked. This is going to be my favourite vegetable. I had to cook the asparagus a little longer because I could not get very thin asparagus. Thanks so much for such a delicious recipe. Linda Jim from Canada

Awesome! I used less butter as others have stated. I also squirted the fresh lemon juice over the asparagus after spooning the sage butter over the top. We ate some of the fried sage leaves on top of our French bread slices. A very delicious recipe.

Love it, love it, love it. I only needed about 1/2 the amount of butter. Everybody loved this - barely fed 4 people. We fought over 2nds. *sigh* thanks, Sistah!
