This was our side dish for the Tortellini Alfredo Casserole. A nice and tasty accompaniment. Very simple to prepare, I actually put my husband in charge of this while I fixed the main dish. Neither was going to take very long and I wanted both done at the same time. All four boys ate this asparagus (though the little one did still complain a bit.)
