PrintEmail "I never tried asparagus until I was in college, but it was certainly a match made in heaven. To me, it is so good it could be eaten steamed and plain, but I know most people like more. This very easy recipe tastes complicated. I've had many people ask me for the recipe and then tell me they've passed it to a bunch of others." Ingredients 1 pound asparagus spears, washed, woody ends snapped off1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil1/2 teaspoon dried parsley1/2 teaspoon horseradish1 tablespoon dijon mustard1/4 teaspoon paprika (I prefer Hungarian paprika because it is sweeter, but regular will do) Instructions Mix horseradish, dijon mustard and paprika into a paste. Set aside. Heat olive oil and parsley in a skillet on medium heat. When hot, add asparagus. Saute, with constant attention for five minutes. Pour off remaining oil, turn heat to low. Add paste mixture, blend throughout asparagus, and stir. Serve immediately. —Chuck Mallory, Chicago, Ill.
