    First of all, when you look at the ingredients, it does not say anything about asparagus nor does it say anything about spaghetti or pasta. I'm inclined to think there is a problem with the app. Second, in the directions, it does not say anything about the preparation of the asparagus. Are there spices to be added or maybe oil?
