    mizzlizzita's Note:

    You can also use green beans, which are generally cheaper. The original recipe calls for a bit less spice, but I use more and use about 2 tablespoons or more minced onion (if you do this, add more butter or margarine). This is one of my favorite recipes ever =] Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Cut up veggies (asparagus: cut off bottom and cut each "tree" into about three pieces. green beans: cut off both ends and slice into one or two pieces each.).
    2. 2
      Melt butter or margarine in frying pan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add cut up veggies and all seasonings.
    4. 4
      Toss to coat.
    5. 5
      Cover pan and fry for about 8 minutes for asparagus and 10-15 minutes for green beans.
    6. 6
      Stir once or twice (if at all) until cooked the way you like them (we like our veggies soft -- you might like them crunchy).

      Yum, yum!!!! I roasted this to be lazy. I sprayed tinfoil on a baking sheet with Pam and added the asparagus. I sprayed it with garlic flavored EVOO. I didn't have cajun seasoning so I used cayenne and eyeballed all measurements. I used regular salt instead of seasoning salt and added about 5 cloves of minced garlic. YUM!!! Roasted at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and squirted fresh lemon on top. Will definitely make again!

      The spices are great on beans - I made the recipe a bit differently. I frenched the beans because they were just a tad big, steamed them for 8 minutes and then sprinkled the spice over them. Looked great and tasted great. I look forward to next years asparagus season - Will make this recipe again
