    GaylaJ's Note:

    Quick, easy, and delicious! I love asparagus and usually just roast it with olive oil and kosher salt. However, I cook it so often in the spring that my family starts to tire of eating it the same way, so I must look for other ways to prepare it. We really enjoyed it cooked this way.

      A very good recipe, my youngest son could have eaten the whole skillet full himself. My sesame seeds weren't toasted, so I just tossed them in when I sauted the garlic and browned them too. It's an excellent side to broiled or baked fish.
