    Really was quick and delicious! I will definitely be making this many more times! As a note, I halved the recipe, only microwaved the asparagus 5 minutes, and didn't reheat it after I added the sauce because it was still hot. - 3/7/10

    I make a similar mustard sauce but prep asparagus as above, toss with a little olive oil then spread flat on baking sheet to roast for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Mix the mustard sauce throughout the asparagus, it should all be nice and hot. and you avoid using the microwave. - 8/11/10

    this is so quick and easy to make, very tasty! My BF usually does not eat more than 4 spears at a time, but ate twice that w/ the sauce! - 11/26/12

  • JLuvshikin - steam above simmering water or stock. I don't know if you'd maybe have to do it in batches, but it would only take about the same time, maybe up to 10 minutes, depending.Still needs turned during cooking.
    Or invest in an asparagus pan, if you eat a lot of it.
