"A divine side dish for almost any main dish. Asparagus sauteed in garlic butter, then finished off with a red wine and raisin sauce. Quick and easy (Isn't this what we're are all looking for?)!"

The sauce is gourmet. The mixture of wine and raisins is fantastic. My guests requested I make it several more times! Easy to make.

I used extra garlic and also a bit of salt. Had no raisins on hand but was pleased with the mixture of the butter/wine/garlic.

Thought this sounded weird - but I had leftover wine and wanted to use it. It was delicious! I used golden raisins, as that's what I had on hand - and it still worked.

My husband ate 2 helpings and was going for thirds. I think this is a winner!! :)

We thought this was pretty bland! We doctored it up with butter, and salt. Probably won't make again. Sorry!

Interesting flavor combo - we really enjoyed it!
