Who says making dinner has to take a long time,
The is now a keeper of MINE!
Only had one bunch of asparagus, so made up the rest with finely diced red capsicum, TRUE!
Colourfully delicious with a bit of chilli kick too!
Used splenda to make it even more healthy for me!
Seriously, this is an easy to do, YUM recipe!
