Simple to prepare. The sauce by itself didn't wow me and I wondered why am I making this. Put with the steamed asparagus (seasoned with salt and pepper) it took on a whole new perspective and was actually pleasing. Will I make it again? No but it was good for one dinner. Read More

Sorry to rain on the parade but we didn't like this at all. I ended up rinsing off the yogurt and tossing the asparagus in garlicky butter. I'm glad others liked it but I won't be making this again. Read More

My whole family loved this!! I have to double the amount of asparagus because there wasn't enough. Very easy to cook; especially with a steamer for the veggie. Read More

Rasberry yogurt makes it different but almost too sweet. Read More

As far as simple recipes to dress up asparagus go this one is definately the best I've found. The tart and sweet of the yogurt really help to bring out the crisp green flavor of the asparagus. I will definately make this again. Read More
