asparagus, bottoms trimmed
We love this. I cook the asparagus my usual way - add spears to boiling salted water, and simmer until they turn bright green (about 2 mins). Drain, and immerse in a bowl of iced water - heat the butter in the skillet, add the asparagus and and let it heat through. I then add the almonds, and stir. I sprinkle the cheese over the asparagus on the serving plate - this all avoids soggy almonds, over-cooked asparagus, and gluey cheese. Delicious and easy. Thanks!
I used freshly shredded parmesan cheese and ended up with crisp and tasty asparagus with a wad of melted cheeses studded with almonds. Won't be making this again.
I always add chopped garlic when I sautee asparagus...And like Caroline C said, add the premesean cheese just before serving.
I made this as a side dish for a Sunday family dinner and received wonderful reviews on it! The only thing I did different was that after I bolied the asparagus, I drained them and then immediately put them in ice water. I laighly sauteed the almonds in butter and then turned the heat down and added the asparagus. I added the cheese after I removed it from the pan to elliminate a big string mess and to make a great presentation. This is a great way to get your kids to eat asparagus and almonds are an excellent source of nutrition!
I love this- make it all the time. I never use shredded parmesan however; it probably would gum up if you did. The cheese browns quickly and you kind of have to watch it. It is yummy and the ONLY way I'll eat asparagus. Thanks!
Very tasty. I used olive oil in place of butter and added some pepper, garlic sea salt and used toasted slivered almonds. Beautiful, easy and a new regular for us. Thanks for sharing.
This was easy and delicious! I waited to add the Parmesan until I put the asparagus on the serving platter, which worked out quite well. Yum!
Didn't care for the cooking method, which is why I rate this four stars. Specifically, I know that adding and "cooking" the cheese with the asparagus in the pan would have resulted in a sticky, nasty pan to clean so while I used the ingredients as directed in the recipe, I just modified how I put it together. I simply steamed the asparagus, then dressed it up with the almonds (toasted at 350 degrees for 5 minutes) and shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano. Elegant and steps above plain, cooked asparagus - five stars.
