Sauteed Kickin' Garlic Asparagus

A simple but tasty twist to regular old Asparagus. I love this recipe, and enjoy it everytime we make it! You can add spice, or intense garlic flavor, or both... anyway they turn out delicious!


  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine - or as an alternative to butter use EVOO
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Black Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (this is optional, gives it a bit of a kick)


  1. Melt the butter or margarine (or EVOO) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, pepper, red pepper flakes and asparagus spears; cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until asparagus is tender. If you like your asparagus well done, reduce heat and cook an additional 10 minutes - but I love it a bit crunchy.

You could garnish with parm for a bit of cheese. Enjoy!
