About this recipe: This garlicky asparagus side dish is a northern Italian favourite. My family loves it!
Altered ingredient amounts. This is absolutely delicious. We are a garlic loving family, and so I doubled the garlic cloves and didn't use quite as much butter as called for. The asparagus had a garlic infused taste and stayed crunchy well after it was done cooking. I gave it a hefty dose of salt and served it over rice along with a Salmon recipe also found on the site. Will definitely be making again. Thanks a bunch Kim!! - 15 Sep 2008
I've never cooked asparagus before, and only eaten it once before so I was not hopeful about it, but I have to say, this was simply delicious. We had fish and brown rice with it, and I added some lemon juice to the leftover garlicky butter from the pan as a dipping sauce. Many happy groans of delight. - 15 Sep 2008
