This Simple Sauteed Asparagus recipe is my go to recipe for whenever I’m making Asparagus. 

Simple Sauteed Asparagus

Asparagus is best when prepared simply, if you ask me. 

You really don’t need to add anything extra to it besides salt and pepper along with an oil of your choosing.

For this recipe, I used olive oil and one tablespoon of butter.

Asparagus goes well alongside many different types of dishes or enjoy it as is.

Wanting to feed more people? Simply double the recipe up, easy enough eh?

That is it, simple and super tasty.

You can of course add crushed garlic to the asparagus during the last 2 minutes of sauteing if desired.

So if you’re looking for a healthy and satisfying side dish to your dinner tonight or just a better way to prepare Asparagus.

I hope this recipe puts a smile on your face!

You can also bake the asparagus, however that takes longer to cook and turns out less crispy and more mushy.

I much prefer my asparagus sauteed as I can cook it just to my liking.

What way is your favorite way to make asparagus?
