"This is the best way to cook asparagus to enjoy it's flavor. It comes out absolutely perfect. For the wine, we recommend Pinot Grigio."

This recipe makes some of the most amazing asparagus I've had. However, the recommended cooking time yeilds a crunchier asparagus, so if you are a fan of soft aspargus just zap it a little long...

Good, but tasted too much like wine and too little like asparagus. Next time I'll use 1/2 wine and 1/2 water.

This was a quick, easy and tasty side dish. I used Pinot Grigio as suggested and it came out just fine in a matter of minutes. This is the perfect side when the rest of your meal is laborious.
