    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

    I sprinkle balsamic vinegar on the asparagus just before serving instead of the lemons. - 3/9/10
