If your asparagus is thinner or thicker you will need to adjust the cook time.
For very thin asparagus start at 3 minutes, and then check for doneness.  Add more time in 1 minute intervals if it is not cooked enough.
For very thick asparagus, cook for 6-7 minutes and then check for doneness adding more time in one minute intervals.
