MY REVIEW

"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."

"Absolutely delicious. The salt settled to the bottom of my bowl and got some spots too salty. I would pour the oil over and mix the salt and pepper separately and then sprinkle that mixture over to cover it evenly."

"I've only recently acquired a taste for asparagus. This is the best recipe I've tried yet. I really enjoyed the asparagus and tomatoes together. The hint of lemon, the kosher salt, and the creaminess of the parmesan really enhanced the vegetables. I used slivered almonds rather than pine nuts."

"Really enjoyed this vegetable dish. We were only 4 at the table but we LOVE asparagus. I had to cut out the sodium so I substituted Mrs. Dash original. Low or no sodium is the way I have to cook in our home, so I just do. I only used half of the parmesan. Clean up was nice & easy too."
