This recipe was great. Easy, healthy and delicious. I used cherry tomatoes and added a splash of white balsamic vinegar. YUM. My mother in law makes the same thing with green beans, also very good. I will make this again soon! Thanks.
This was the first year I had to cook for a large family gathering. It was Thanksgiving this year. I did both asparagus and green beans. I brought the green beans to my aunt's house for dinner and everyone was asking who made them. They loved them!!! I made the asparagus a few days later at home for my boyfriend and I only because it's so much more expensive. It was great with both vegetables! I did add extra tomato and garlic to the recipe just because I wanted to make a more dramatic flavor, but I loved loved loved this dish! Yum!
Some of my tips: 1) Chopping asparagus into thirds will make them a more manageable length when eating. 2) Check for and discard pieces of asparagus (especially the pieces closest to the ground) that are woody... they won't be be pleasant to chew later. 3) Put the thicker pieces into water right from the start. Add the asparagus tops to the water later, because they need shorter cooking time. All in all, this is a simple and great recipe for one of the best vegetables in existence: Asparagus!
I intended to make these on another night but Hubs nixed the idea because he didn't think he'd like this so I went with something else. But that didn't work tonight and I'm glad I went with it anyway. Turns out we both enjoyed this! I did change the cooking method however cooking the tomatoes separately then using them to top the asparagus which I blanched for two minutes then shocked in ice water. I liked this method which preserved the integrity and color of both the tomatoes and the asparagus.
