YUMMY! And, for the record, I am not a "green veggie" eater! But this was wonderful! I am always looking for new ways to get my veggie intake, and thanks to Bergy, I will now add "Asparagus" to my likeable veggie list!

Excellent dish! I did use more olive oil, and since I like my asparagus still crispy, but cooked more than just heated through, I added it first with the garlic and sauteed a few minutes before adding the peppers. I threw in an extra clove of garlic for good measure. :) Thanks for another great one, Bergy!
