Recipe Expert Tips

  • Cooking Asparagus: Use similar sized asparagus in the bundles. Wrap large stalks together and small stalks together so all of the asparagus in each bundle cooks completely at the same time.
  • What type of pan to use: Use a shallow baking pan with sides to keep the olive oil from spilling over the side while cooking.
