Pan-Fried Asparagus

Posted on

I have always turned my nose up at asparagus, that is until recently. My sister and I found this recipe for Pan-Fried Asparagus online at It is so delicious, so quick and easy to tweak to make it your own. These days, asparagus is on my grocery list every week and is a great go-to veggie side for anything I’m cooking. Honestly, though, I can decide what I love best about asparagus… the taste or how beautiful it looks on the plate! Let me know what you think of this one.
