This is quite good and very easy to make. I thought it needed something more so I put in fresh mushrooms and it added a lot of flavor.

This recipe needed a lot of adjustments to suit our tastes. I used 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbps olive oil, i sauted the garlic with the asparagus unil tender and moved to the side. I used fat free half and half and almost 1/2 cup of parmesean cheese, the juice of one lemon and let it simmer for a bit. added the asparagus back to the pot and heated through. added salt and fresh black pepper and called it dinner. Will make again and may make a few more adjustments as I go.

This is very easy to make. It does take longer than 10 minutes for the sauce to thicken and by that time the asparagus was mush. Needed some more seasonings for more flavor unless you like a very mild pasta dish. Next time I'll keep some steamed asparagus to serve with the sauce in addition to what is in the sauce.
