Delicious Asparagus


1 pound asparagus 
2 cloves garlic, slivered 
2 Tbsp. water 
2 Tbsp. dry white wine or nonalcoholic white wine 
2 tsp. lemon juice 
1 tsp. olive oil 
1/4 tsp. salt 
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper 


Break off the tough ends from the asparagus spears. 
With a vegetable peeler, peel the bottom half of the asparagus stalks. 
Scatter the garlic in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. 
Arrange the asparagus in a single layer. 
In a small bowl, combine the water, wine, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. 
Pour over the asparagus. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. 
Turn the asparagus over and roast for 8 to 10 minutes more,
or until the asparagus are tender but slightly crisp and the liquid is almost gone. 

Makes 4 servings.
