A divine side dish for almost any main dish. Asparagus sauteed in garlic butter, then finished off with a red wine and raisin sauce. Quick and easy (Isn't this what we're are all looking for?)!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 bunch fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup red wine
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic in the butter until fragrant. Add the asparagus, cover, and cook for 2 minutes, then pour in the wine, and add the raisins. Cook uncovered until wine has evaporated and asparagus is tender, about 4 minutes. Serve hot.
