I love making asparagus this way. Nice choice of herbs. I usually use Penzey's Mural of Flavor and feta, or Parmesan. Sometimes I top with sliced almonds that I keep on hand in the freezer. The clean up is so easy too.

Hello Ann - seeing you after a long time... and also I am visiting after a long gap. How are you doing?. I was held with some works with kids and could not visit friends recently.

Loved your new template. Looks very good.

I love the simplicity of this dish. My husband adores asparagus and can't wait for them to appear at the grocers or farmers market. They should be in season here in the next month or so.

There is no asparagus in my part of the world. I have only tasted the canned ones and they were pretty horrid. I always thought that I might quite like the fresh ones. Thanks for stopping by my blog today

Very simple and well illustrated.

Happy to follow u..

Suhaina:
Thanks for your comment adn visiting my blog. Nope It does not taste bitter. It has a taste slightly relates to our Indian Drumstick..or atleast that what I feel. You need to chop the end part of Asparagu like about an Inch to avoid bitternes.

I wish I could bring asparagus home more often ... but hubbs can't stand it, so it's usually just left to me to finish them! Maybe I can entice him with this cheesy version :)
