"An easy spring side dish that doesn't mask the asparagus's unique flavor, and is done in just 3 easy steps. Top with feta cheese for extra tang, or use slivered almonds for a milder flavor and a little crunch. Serve hot or cold."

This was so good-- the cheese on top definitely gave it a nice tang. Everyone at the table had seconds!

Wonderful!! I was eating it off of the serving dish with my fingers! Both my brother and husband, who hate asparagus, were gushing over it. The kids didn't think a whole lot of it, but I didn't ...
