    This is amazing! I can't seem to make my asparagus any other way now. It came from Bon Appétit magazine. I also use Parmesan-Reggiano.

      This is very good, but it's something we won't make frequently because of the calorie and fat content.

      Absolutely delicious! Asparagus is crispy and so yummy. I made the topping too chunky once, I make sure it pours on smooth! : )

      Yummy! Would probably double the topping to be purely decadent next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
