This is delicious! My 22 year old son who has never liked asparagus ate 5 pieces tonight! A definite do-over that will become a staple in my house. The sauce is delicious and can go with a lot of other vegetables, tofu, fish, etc.

I'm so glad I made this fairly simple dish - as was my husband. It tastes so bright and delicious. 4.5 stars! Thank you.
