"I really enjoyed this recipe for many reasons. It was quite easy to make, delicious, beautiful presentation and one that I am sharing with my special friends that I consider are gourmet cooks. My only problem with this recipe is that it is so good that it would only serve 4 people. I am enjoying many recipes on this web site but this has been the best recipe so far.

I give it 5 stars"

"I cannot rave enough about this recipe! It is so simple, and just so amazing. I didn't have pine nuts so I made without, and it was still delicious. I ate the leftovers cold the next day, right out of the fridge. I can't believe there were even any leftovers! This will be a regular part of my side-dish rotation."

"I made this twice this week! It was so good with the Easter ham we had no leftovers. So I made it again just to satisfy my craving for it! Best asparagus recipe yet! I actually doubled the recipe on Easter! Thanks for a great recipe!"

"Sent this recipe to my daughter as her part of my Easter dinner. It was a great hit and takes so little prep time that I was envious."
