Fresh asparagus is one of our favorite side dishes.  I also enjoy cutting it into smaller pieces and adding it to omelets in the morning.  I understand that roasting is the most common way to find this recipe (in addition to grilling), but I find it just as easy, if not easier, just to sauté it in a skillet.  This is so very easy to make, I was reluctant to list it in recipe form, but was convinced otherwise by a dear friend. Enjoy!
