Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

This recipe was a first for me, in many ways. Not only was it a new recipe, but it was also my first time ever having made asparagus and my first time ever eating asparagus.  So I didn’t really know what to expect. I’ve always thought I would hate asparagus. Maybe just because it’s ugly. But it was really pretty good, and I didn’t hate it!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

The recipe:

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine

  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus

  • 3 cloves garlic,minced

  • a splash of white wine

 

Melt the butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and asparagus spears; cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until asparagus is tender. If you like your asparagus well done, reduce heat and cook an additional 10 minutes. Add a splash of white wine in the last 2 minutes of cooking.
