    Holy cow, loved this recipe, Kelly. I think I actually licked the plate. And stole all the asparagas from Matt and the kids. Oops.

    We enjoyed this recipe! It was nice to find this recipe on your site and not have to wade through hundreds of asparagus recipes online. Logan and Lila liked it too.
