Personal Notes:
This is a recipe out of a Weight Watcher's cookbook that I have modified. It is delicious, super easy & fast and I feel like I am losing weight while I eat it. :> You can also substitute the asparagus for another green vegetable if it is not in season such as snap peas, snow peas, or broccoli.
