      I saute asparagus on the stove with garlic and olive oil. Some Parmesan cheese sounds like a great topping. : )

      This looks scrumptious. I can actually feel all those flavors rolling around my taste buds right now. As the Cooking with Whole Grains and Whole Foods Contributor on Squidoo, I built a FB page, also titled "Cooking with Whole Grains & Whole Foods," to spotlight all the good lenses and articles I find on the topic. Heading there now to pin this as the recipe of the day. Thanks for a recipe I can't wait to try next time we grill.
