"This a deliciously easy way to prepare asparagus. Sometimes I add julienned carrots and steam them together. It all looks very pretty with the colors."

  1. Combine the asparagus and water in a 10 inch skillet and place over medium heat; cover. Allow the asparagus to steam until tender, about 10 minutes; drain. Reduce heat to low and return the skillet to the heat. Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Add the grape tomatoes to the skillet and replace the lid. Allow to sit covered until the cheese melts and the tomatoes are slightly steamed, about 2 minutes.

Excellent recipe! I made it for Easter and there wasn't a bite left. The only change I made was to add a splash of white balsamic vinegar with the olive oil. I will definitely be making it again.

I used this recipe as a guide, but made a number of changes, including changing the cooking method. I used 1/2 bunch of asparagus, cut into 2-3" pieces, tossed in just a little olive oil, addin...
