Asparagus Parmigiano-Reggiano Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

Parmesan Cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano)
2 pounds asparagus stalks, washed and trimmed
Extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt or sea salt and coarsely-ground black pepper
Traditional Aceto Balsamico (aged Balsamic Vinegar), optional

 

Instructions:

Use a cheese planer/slicer or vegetable peeler, shave curls off the Parmigian-Reggiano cheese wedge; set aside.

Snap or cut off the tough ends of the asparagus.  Arrange asparagus in a single layer in a shallow baking pan.  Blanch the asparagus in lightly-salted boiling water for approximately 4 minutes or until crisp-tender; do not overcook.  Remove from heat and refresh under cold water; drain well

Toss asparagus with just enough olive oil to lightly coat.  Arrange asparagus on a serving platter or individual serving plates.

Sprinkle coarse salt, pepper, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese curls over the top of the asparagus.  

For an extra-special taste sensation, drizzle the tops of the asparagus with balsamic vinegar.  So good!

Makes 4 servings.
