I thought this was just okay--I've had asparagus other ways that I have enjoyed much more. My husband really was disappointed in this recipe and thought it was a waste of good ingredients.

We just had this tonight, and we thought it was absolutely a wonderful asparagus recipe! Cut the oils in half and used peanuts because we had them. Make sure you cook the asparagus until tende...
