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

  2. 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

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

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

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

  6. Makes 4 servings.
