  • Reviews

  • “I thought I would like this more than I did since I normally love anything marinated in Italian dressing, but the taste plus the texture of the asparagus reminded me too much of eating a pickle (and I’m not really fond of pickles). Someone who loves pickles would probably love this! Made and reviewed for *Zaar* Cookbooks *Tag* Game 2008.”

  • “Woo hoo!I finally got my husband to eat asparagus!I made this using the entire bunch of asparagus and an 8 oz. bottle of Wishbone Italian dressing. I followed steps 2 and 3 to the letter, and served as a side dish with a nice roast.Now I can have asparagus, and my husband will eat it too. Thank you!”
