One way we all love other than steamed crisp and dunk in mayo, is to roast the asparagus in the oven after you first drizzle with evoo, coarse salt and a little black pepper. Cook about 10-12 min depends on how crisp or done you like it..Remove from oven and let cool eough so you can handle it. Wrap in prosciutto and lay on platter. pour the evoo from the roasting pan over the platter of asparagus adding more evoo if need be. Then grate some parmesan over the whole thing...

TNT Farfalle with Asparagus, Orange and Basil Sauce

For me, plain is best. Either brushed with garlic infused oil and grilled, or steamed till tender crisp and dressed with melted butter

Asparagus any style.

But agree with Sizzlin that baked is high on the list.

My method is close to Sizzlin's.

Usually put evoo in pan (1/4 inch maybe) and then fry some finely sliced garlic.

Then filter out the garlic, add asparagus to the pan and roast at 350.

Then at the end add freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

aspargus season

they are about ready to be available from the local farmers here. strawberries and aspargus same time. two of my favorites.

way I like aspargus is steamed to just crisp tender. two poached eggs on top w/hollandaise sauce. since I am the only one who likes eggs, I make it for myself when no one eating at home. really wonderful w/slice of toasted bread.


I can eat aspargus any time of the year but preferably fresh.

Asparagus went on sale today. Going to be going to the store tomorrow. Wish my brother would get down here from MI to show me where that asparagus grows near my hometown. But i have to wait till Easter weekend.

The lemon jello sounds grotesque!

Be reminded that Asparagus does not need to be COOKED Like modern corn on the cob it only has to be made hot enough to hold the butter.
