We really enjoyed the asparagus prepared this way LorenLou. Love the addition of the sugar. It gives it a slightly sweet, salty taste, yum. The asparagus were perfectly cooked. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, it was quick and easy to make with terrifici results. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.
