I don’t repeat recipes very often but this one is worth repeating. Spring means an abundance of fresh asparagus at the Farmer’s Market. This recipe is light, quick, easy and so delicious! If you don’t have any asparagus on hand you could substitute another vegetable but if you are an asparagus lover give it a try. You’ll find yourself making it more than once!
