Asparagus Sauteed in Butter and Mustard

Asparagus Sauteed in Butter and Mustard created by breezermom

Adapted from Kitchen of Light. The original used unsalted butter, but I prefer salted. If you do use unsalted butter, adding a pinch of salt might be a good idea. I do not recommend a nonstick pan for this dish.

    Yum yum! I used whole grain mustard and Earth Balance margarine. Great way to eat asparagus. Thanks!

    Sooo good! Loved this simple; yet delicious dish. I really enjoy dishes with simple ingredients that are full of flavor like this one. I served this with a Chicken Piccata which also included the same ingredients in it. Will definitely be on my go-to list from now on! Thanks for the post!

    What a tasty dish! I made sure to cook the asparagus till just tender and the flavors came thru of the dijon and butter. I also added some salt to it. Made for Zaar's Newest Star Tag Game 2012.
