I’ve never posted a recipe before, but I came up with a pretty tasty asparagus recipe (with some ideas from the internet of course). Here goes:
1 – 2 bunches asparagus (I used 2 bunches)
2 Tbsp olive oil (I use extra virgin cold-pressed)
2 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp lemon zest, freshly grated
Salt & pepper to taste
1 – Rinse asparagus, snap off & discard tough bottoms, & cut into 1 – 2 inch sections.
2 – Steam asparagus, or boil in saucepan (I chose to steam it). Steam to taste – I like mine a little crunchy, probably about 5 – 7 min. While the asparagus is still hot, toss in serving bowl with olive oil, lemon zest, and Parmesan. Salt & pepper to taste.
I knew this recipe was a keeper when Adelle actually ate the serving we put on her plate. Rich even had seconds!
We also had spiral-sliced ham (8.5-lbs is a LOT of ham) and whole-wheat butterhorns. I also meant to saute some sweet potatoes, but I forgot…
