I typically oven roast my garlicky asparagus so this was a nice change.  I simmered the asparagus for 4 minutes then drained, wiped out the pan, added the oil and garlic and after 1 minute, put the asparagus back in for 2 more minutes of cooking.  They came out perfectly and I'll definitely use this method to cook asparagus again in the future.

Meh... Not bad, but not that great either. Sort've bland. In terms of quick asparagus recipes, it doesn't really trump simple saute with a hint of lemon juice. I doubt I'll make this again.
