    This is my 1st time making this & it was great! A nice, decent mustard flavor with a small bit of zing, but not overwhelming the natural asparagus flavor. I added no salt or pepper as that can be added to taste afterwards. However, if you want more zing to it, use spicy brown mustard or horseradish mustard in lieu of the mild Dijon mustard.

    My husband made this last night to go along with rack of lamb and wild rice and it was unbelievable. So perfect and so delicious.

    Easy and delish! I did use thicker spears (only ones I could fine) and cutting them in half worked great.
