Gingered Asparagus Recipe

We enjoy asparagus fresh from our garden every spring. This is one of my favorite ways to serve it. It's great for those watching their fat intake and so fast to fix. —Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey

"I love asparagus, but this recipe was quite bland. It didn't have a very good flavor to it, the soy sauce and the ginger completely ruined it :("
