    I made this tonight. I used extra garlic and instead of olive oil I used PAM olive oli spray to decrease the calories. It was wonderful. I doubled up on the serving!

    This was a great side dish to some fish I was making. Used up the rest of the veggies I had in the fridge by throwing some bell peppers, mushrooms and onions in the pan at the start. - 4/13/10

    This is awesome with fish, steak or all by itself. Been cooking asparagus this way for a long time except I use more than 2 cloves of garlic. I use as much as possible and I make sure I toss the asparagus with my hands on the pan along with the S&P & EVOO. Enjoy! - 4/6/11
