Stir-fried asparagus -- a simple spring side dish

I love asparagus! It is one of my very favorite vegetables, especially in spring. Recently I tried this recipe: Stir-Fried Asparagus from an older Country Woman magazine. We liked this side dish a lot. It was quick and easy to make, and very flavorful. I left out the lemon rind because I didn't want to take the time to grate it, but the flavor was still great. I had purchased shredded parmesan to sprinkle on top, but forgot to do so and it was delicious even without that garnish. Maybe your family would enjoy this side dish too. It is going to become one of my go-to recipes for asparagus!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
