    Annacia's Note:

    If your looking for something fresh that celebrates the arrivial of Spring, this is it! Be sure to use softer fresh Parmesan from the deli so that it will be able to melt nicely if at all possible.

      I love asparagus, and this version is delicious....I reduced the cooking time because I noticed my asparagus getting too stove cooks really fast. I loved the combination of asparagus and grape tomatoes. I'll add a little garlic next time, because I tend to add it to everything. Thanks for sharing!
