Asparagus with Olive Oil and Green Garlic

Total time: 20 min green   30 minutes for white
     Normally, I just do this with fresh, snipped chives, but, as long as I had the green garlic, why not?  Use chives if you don't have it.  Be careful not to cook the asparagus too long, it should be just tender when pierced with a knife.
