MY REVIEW

"I never dress my veggies, this recipe made me realize that I need to! Quick and simple, and delicious! A definate keeper."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2011

"This is a very tasty way to prepare asparagus... and I am not an asparagus fan at all. I just made this because my husband likes asparagus and I was pleasantly surprised by how the herbs, red peppers and walnuts accentuated the mild-flavored asparagus. I will definitely add this to my list of "keepers"!"
