TNT Asparagus with goat cheese and roasted red peppers!
I made this for our Christmas dinner. I never thought I'd enjoy asparagus as much as I did during this meal. Thought I'd share. It was such a nice smoky tasting dish. Can't wait to make it again!
This serves 2-3
1 lb asparagus with ends trimmed
1 roasted red bell pepper (I got a jar from Trader Joes), sliced
2 oz goat cheese
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
I heated a half TBS of both olive oil and butter in a 10 inch pan over med-high. After the butter had melted, I added asparagus and used tongs to cover the asparagus in the olive oil/butter. Covered it for 3 minutes. Then I turned the heat up to high and turned the asparagus with the tongs. Cooked it for 3-4 more minutes until they were browned. I added the red peppers just to warm up. Then transfered it to a plate and topped with the goat cheese and pine nuts.
