Sauteed Asparagus

Simple, quick way to prepare asparagus. What's this you say? You don't like asparagus? If so, I bet you you're overcooking it... it should still be very slightly crunchy when eaten. And please -- don't ever boil asparagus away... it gets far too mushy and loses all its flavor! This recipe start to finish - about 12 mins; about 4 mins sauteeing time.

Medium- high was a little much. I'll sauté this again at a temp just a bit lower. Texture and taste of asparagus was excellent!

So good sautéed! I use olive oil instead of butter and add garlic to the pan for about 20 seconds before adding asparagus.
