This recipe is making me weep over the poor quality of the asparagus I found in my grocery store today. WOW, this looks great! I might have to go to the fancy store tomorrow.pursefullofcurlers in Herndon loved it
I'm a huge fan of both pancetta and asparagus, but never thought of pairing them together. This sounds awesome and I can't wait to make this.jencathen in loved it
