    I really liked it. Super easy to prepare. Supposedly it makes four servings, but my husband and I easily finished the whole thing in one night. I tend to kind of stink at cooking "basic" recipes, so knowing how to make a simple but flavorful side green was helpful.

    This recipe is delicious, simple and quick, and a nice way to dress-up asparagus for company, or just for a change of pace. I doubled the amount of zest and lemon juice to be tossed with the cooked spears, and served it with Cooking Light's Double-Sesame Grilled Tuna recipe (Sept 2009) from this site and a green salad. I'll definitely be making this again.

    This is a perfect easy asparagus recipe. Don't use the big asparagus - this recipe is for the fresher, more tender medium asparagus. Really, when it comes to asparagus, this is about all you need to do to enjoy them.

    This makes a great side dish! Easy to prepare and has a wonderful, fresh flavor. Although I really dislike cleaning my grater, this is worth it.

    Wow...the asparagus was so tender and flavorful with just a hint of lemon and sea salt. I used bottled lemon juice and left out the grated lemon rind since I didn't have any fresh lemons on hand. This will be my new go-to recipe for asparagus. It's so simple and delicious!
