How do you Cook Asparagus – Asparagus & Sun Dried Tomatoes

This dish can be served as an appetizer or as a side. It can be made last minute and always dresses up table. It is also very nutritious and – more importantly – tremendously delicious! Here is what you are going to need for this:

Serves six

1 pound trimmed asparagus
2 TBS olive oil
1/4 cup sun-dries tomatoes in olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the trimmed asparagus and cook for about 5 minutes – on high heat – until asparagus turns bright green and is still crisp.
Add the tomatoes and cook – stirring – for another 4 to 5 minutes. Taste the asparagus – it should be cooked but still crisp. If it is still a little hard go ahead and cook for a little longer. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Serve and enjoy!
