  1. Place the asparagus and 1/3 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave on High 1 minute, or just until tender. Rinse under cold water, and blot dry with paper towels.
  2. Spread 1 side of 6 bread slices with 1/4 teaspoon butter and about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise each. Layer with asparagus, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place lettuce over the asparagus, season with pepper, and top with remaining 6 bread slices to form 6 sandwiches. Slice on a diagonal; this is a sandwich that exudes spring !

Great simple sandwich! I did saute the asparagus in a little olive oil instead of microwaving. Nice!

took this for lunch at a tennis match. Food is important at these matches. Everyone raved.

Delicious! I used a sesame french bread cut on the diagonal, and lots of fresh shaved parmesean. The asparagus is crisp tender and this really is a great spring appetizer! Thanks Dakotabear1 fo...

This is one of my favorites now! This tasted much better than I thought it would. I think fresh sliced tomatoes will make it even better next time.

Really yummy and quick sandwich.
