1. Melt butter in sauce pan until hot (Clarified butter won't burn if that is a concern. See note below)
2. Add green onions and peppers and saute until just beginning to soften
3. Reduce heat to medium, add Asparagus, green beans and tarragon, cover and heat until Asparagus is tender.
Sprinkle with freshly grated (real) Parmesan.
NOTE: To clarify butter, melt in covered container in microwave. A two cup, clear Pyrex measure works well as it has a handy handle and lets you see what you are doing. Let stand a minute, gentle tip to one side and spoon off clear top liquid. Discard bottom dregs.
When purchasing Asparagus reach for spears the thickness of a pencil or less. Remove at least one-half inch of the base and store in an upright container (such as a juice pitcher) with several inches of water in the bottom. Use within three to five days of purchase.
Use real Parmesan cheese. The difference in flavor from mass-produced imitations is telling.
