This recipe is a very good way to get the kids to eat asparagus. It was very yummy and easy to make. It needs more spice though. After it was on my plate, I added garlic powder and salt and it helped a lot. Then everybody else added it to theirs too. I think next time I will add fresh garlic while cooking it. I wonder if a little grated Parmesan cheese would be good. i may try that too.
