The Best Asparagus Dish Ever.

The title is true. This is the most amazing way to eat asparagus in my book. The flavors were incredible. It's really addictive, I couldn't stop eating it. Supposedly this was a contest winner, I believe it! I will be making this again and again.

4 oz pancetta, cut into chunks
1 Tbs butter
1 pound asparagus, wood ends trimmed, sliced into 2 inch pieces
1 1/4 cups leeks, sliced, white and pale green parts only
2 cloves garlic
zest of one lemon
1 tsp orange zest
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1-2 Tbs dried italian parsley
1 tsp garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste

In a large non stick pan, saute pancetta over med heat until crisp and lightly golden.
Add 1 Tbs butter, add in the asparagus and leeks. Saute until the asparagus is tender but still crisp about 3-4 minutes

Add garlic, lemon and orange zest, toasted pine nuts, parsley and garlic salt. Saute for 1-2 more minutes until fragrant  Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
