  1. This Was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! I truly enjoyed this!! My changes were to add onion fresh garlic and fresh mushrooms and spinach!!! So Healthy with a ton of veggies and very satisfying!!
  2. It was perfect, and SO simple!! I used fresh asparagus and doubled the recipe.
  3. Very good and healthy! Even my boyfriend, who absolutely hates asparagus, liked it!
  4. Yummy breakfast dish! Must admit though, I like it a bit better with fresh asparagus cut into smaller pieces rather than the frozen (and I used a little olive oil instead of the Pam spray).
  5. Great tasting, healthy, simple and quick recipe. I'm diabetic, and this is a perfect addition to my lowfat, low carb diet plan. A definite keeper. The only changes I made was preparing the dish as a scramble rather than omlet-style and I used Egg Beaters rather than separating egg whites. Thanks Kiwiwife, for a terrific addition to Recipezaar.


Stay at home mom of 3, horse crazy vegetarian of 9 years. My passion is my 6 year old showjumping horse, Platinum Card (aka CASH) I ride on average 6 days a week and LOVE every minute of it! My other passion is food. I was raised with strong Italian grandparents living close by, need I say more!! One of my favorite childhood memories is rolling my grandmom's homemade Gnocci (ALWAYS my special request dinner) at her kitchen table with towel lined cookie sheets of them all over the house! My other grandparents were of Irish and German ancestory and owned a resturant. I guess my love of cooking and even more so, FEEDING people has come naturally. I love to plan menus and themes and I am addicted to Recipezaar! I am married to my best friend who is an ex-Pat New Zealander who craves pies & pineapple lumps. We love travel, soccer & rugby!
