I love this with anything grilled. Sometimes we use feta cheese in addition to the parmesan. you could even drizzle a little fresh lemon juice to give it a twang!

- Thelaughingcook


Are you making this? 
1 bunch asparagus; washed and trimmed (usually a 1 pound bunch)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; grated

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



In medium fry pan (preferably non stick), heat oil and butter on med-high heat. Place asparagus in pan trying to get in a single layer so all can cook evenly. Season with the salt and pepper (adjusting to taste), cover with a lid to help "steam" the asparagus for about 5-6 minutes, tossing occasionally with tongs.

When done to your likeness of crisp or tender, toss in the parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Cooking until tender crisp (a bright green color) is the key also cutting off the tough ends will suit you better [I posted this recipe.]
