Delicious, perfect timing for the asparagus. They were cooked but still had a bit of crisp. Just the way we like them. We don't like too saucy so I cut the sauce back but followed the recipe exactly. Your instructions were easy to follow. Recipe will definitely be made again. I think it will become a favorite in this house.
