Good tasting. Two minor changes to improve nutrition: (1) don't boil asparagus - saute it with onion (or steam quickly in microwave with barely tsp water) to retain vitamins AND (2) salt is unnecessary (especially if watching sodium).
You can also easily vary flavor by adding seasonings of choice. - 4/8/10
