This is my husbands favorite asparagus dish. It comes from the August 2000 issue of Bon Appetit. Quick and easy and full of a lot of flavor. If you like the flavor of sesame you should definately try this. Thanks for posting it!

This recipe was very easy to make. I'd maybe try this again without the sugar. Roasting this might bring out more flavor. Made for *My Three Chefs* 2008 my Theme: * Asparagus*
