      This looks so great on the table! I actually undercooked the asparagus because I was so afraid I would overcook it! I dont know which would have been better? Seperately, the walnuts and asparagus aren't that great, but together they create a really good and interesting taste to where you have to keep trying more! I think the only thing is that I would have preferred a sauce with it as well. Maybe you could just add more butter to get that?

      This was so good and looked really nice on the platter. I will have to remember to take a picture next time I make this. It was a great recipe to use up some extra walnuts from the holidays.
