    Loved this! Made as written and it came out like a champ. I wasn't sure if I'd like the mint but it complimented the asparagus perfectly. That is the one good thing about works great with most any fresh herb. 5 stars all the way and a definite keeper!  -  04 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
