    Since it's in season...I thought I'd share this recipe:

    Creole Asparagus

    1 lb fresh asparagus, cut into 2" pieces
    1 T. Olive oil
    2 T. minced garlic
    1 medium onion, sliced or chopped
    1 large tomato, diced
    Creole seasoning
    Black pepper

    1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop in asparagus, and blanche for 2-3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside.

    2. In a 12" non-stick frying pan, warm olive oil on medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.

    3. Place asparagus on top of onions and garlic. Top with diced tomatoes. Add Creole seasoning and black pepper to taste. (I used about 1/2 tsp of each.)

    4. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Do not stir during cooking process!

    5. Remove lid and gently toss vegetables together. If there is a lot of liquid, leave the lid off, and cook for another 5 minutes.

    This is one of my favorite side dishes!
