How to Make It
Cut each asparagus stalk into 3 or 4 pieces. At serving time, heat the oil in a large skillet until very hot. Add all the ingredients except the salt and pepper. Cover and sauté over high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, tossing or stirring the mixture a few times, so it browns and cooks on all sides. Add the salt and pepper, toss again, and serve on warmed plates.
