Quick and easy asparagus that is sauteed, and topped off with Parmesan cheese.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus spears, and cook, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes, or to desired firmness. Drain off excess oil, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
Note: The butter can be substituted with extra olive oil. I use butter for the flavor.
