This is comfort food! I loved this dish, even though I could not find white asparagus. So I used green asparagus. I hope this did not affect the flavor(don't they just cover up the asparagus to keep it white?). This was excellent ! Thanks Mimi!

I was searching Recipezaar last night to find a recipe for a jar of white asparagus I had and decided to try this one. It was very quick and easy and the only thing I added was salt and pepper as additional seasonings. This was a great side dish which I will use again and start to experiment with with maybe some horseradish or other items to add a spicy kick. Nice recipe Mimi, thanks for the posting.
