  1. Rinse the asparagus with cold water. Snap off the bottom of each asparagus spear and discard the ends.

  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and stir in the minced garlic for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the blanched asparagus to skillet and cook until tender.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
