    I guess it is not fair for me to rate this, considering this is the first time I have EVER eaten Asparagus period, but I thought it was OK. It wasn't spetacular in any way, but I really don't have any other asparagus to compare it to. Unfortunately I will try a different asparagus recipe next time. - 7/11/08

  • I think the cooking time is a bit long (at least for those of us with electric ranges). Also, I added 1 tbsp of minced garlic and omited the garlic powder. - 3/6/08
