    This is actually pretty good. I was wondering why noone reviewed it. I sprinkled it with a slight touch of shredded parmesan cheese. The sundried tomato compliments the asparagus without overpowering it.  -  24 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great & so easy! I love sundried tomatoes, and they added a great zest to the asparagus. I also added some capers. One caution: it is easy to over cook, so watch them carefully. The suggested time made mine soggy-- still delicious, but not as crisp as I would have liked.  -  26 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I would cook the garlic in low heat because it burns quickly. the asparagus where tender within 7 minutes. good side dish.  -  09 Feb 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
