Sauteed Asparagus with Parmesan

This recipe is incredible no really incredible. There is just something about the pairing of asparagus with parmesan cheese that works so well together. I love this recipe for so many reasons. I love parmesan cheese and vegetables together but now make the vegetable asparagus that is a winning combination to me. 

With this being asparagus season I am taking full advantage of it and trying as many new asparagus recipes as possible.

  • 1 pounds asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

  1. Trim thick asparagus with a peeler, leaving them 1/2-inch thick, or snap off the ends.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the asparagus is just tender, 5 to 6 minutes, lowering the heat if needed to keep the asparagus from browning.
  3. Remove the pan from heat. Sprinkle 3 Tablespoons of the cheese.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish, and top with the remaining cheese. Serve immediately.

I could see doing this with coconut oil instead of the butter!
