Love this recipe. It actually got my OH into asparagus - no mean fete! We have it nearly every week with pork chops or gammon. I think it goes with pretty much anything.

I used this recipe and took half to work with me for lunch the next day. Instead of asparagus I used tender-stem broccoli and mange touts with the cherry tomatoes and it was lovely!

I served this cold for a picnic lunch. Doubled the recipe and served 3 adults and 3 kids aged 4, 6 and 9. Also had olives, and cold potatoes. Not a scrap left

Delicious and very easy. Perfect served with new potatoes and BBQ sausages

It was very easy and we like the flavours. However the aspargus were a bit chewy.
