This is the best way to cook asparagus to enjoy it's flavor. It comes out absolutely perfect. For the wine, we recommend Pinot Grigio.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 tablespoons butter
Place asparagus in a microwave-safe dish. Pour in wine, and dot with pieces of butter.
Cover loosely, and cook in the microwave on High for 3 minutes, or until bright green and tender. Allow the dish to stand 5 minutes before serving.
