Rated 4 out of 5 by from When I made this I toasted the walnuts in a skillet instead of in the oven. When I made this I toasted the walnuts in a skillet instead of in the oven. I didn't want to heat the oven just for that. My husband, Rick, said wow they smell great! Had a hard time keeping him out of the nuts!!He & I enjoyed this recipe and I'll make it again and try browning the asparagus in the hot skillet first & then simmer.
