I have a bundle of raw asparagus that I want to make for Easter dinner.

I cook asparagus about twice per week...

I usually just steam it for 3-5 minutes, until bright green, still firm and very flavorful.

I like it with one of the following:

a touch of butter, or...

sliced almonds (or pine nuts) toasted in a little butter or olive oil, or....

Fat free spray butter, with just a pince of salt and pepper, I add garlic sometimes.
