Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Remove scales from asparagus stalks with knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Place the asparagus spears in a steaming rack over boiling water. Cover and steam 4-5 minutes or until asparagus spears are crisp-tender. Transfer to a serving platter. Sautee pine nuts in a small skillet over medium heat 2-3 minutes, until browned. Set aside. Combine olive oil and remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan; stir with a wire whisk to blend. Cook over medium heat 2-3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. Pour over asparagus. Sprinkle the asparagus with pine nuts. Let stand to room temperature before serving.
