    Kitchen Kozy's Note:

    Asparagus is one of my favorite culinary ways to welcome spring. I almost always make this recipe for Passover, which falls at just the right time of year. It would also be great for Easter for the same reason. This is a pretty flexible dish -- you can play with quantities, change up the onions, etc. and it still turns out delicious. I have been replacing much of the butter with olive oil, and that works fine too. Cooking time assumes pre-trimmed and pre-cooked asparagus, though what I usually do is trim it (it's more tender if you break it wherever it breaks naturally than if you cut it) and start it steaming, then make the sauce.

      This was an *awesome* recipe. We made it for a friend earlier this year who was observing Passover. The only thing we had to change was the butter to olive oil. We used scallions because they're easier to deal with than leeks. Pistachios are the perfect touch. I'm pulling this one out to make for Thanksgiving. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I was looking for a different way to prepare asparagus and found it! I used leeks instead of shallots because that's what I had. Also, I used a combo of red and yellow tomatoes (again that's what I had) and the color was beautiful!!! Very festive looking. I did not put the pistachios on but assume that would add to flavore and texture. Even more: I chopped the leftovers and mixed with scrambled egg whites for breakfast---yummy again. Thanks for a great new recipe.
