Such a simple and quick recipe to throw together, I will make it again but next time I will also add some lemon juice over the spears at the end before serving. It lacked a little bit of flavour.

The combination of the zing from the lemon & earthiness of the parmesan added a nice burst of flavor to the asparagus. Served with baked cod and a green salad for an easy summer meal. Made in memory of Annalies.

We loved the Parmesan and lemon combination in this recipe. The flavors complimented the asparagus perfectly! My asparagus spears were quite thin, so I used 1-lb. Also, I microwaved the asparagus for about 7 minutes instead of boiling it. This recipe is definitely a keeper!!

We love asparagus and I am delighted to have a new recipe to add to the repertoire. I used half of the flavoured butter as directed so it melted entirely and added the remaining butter on just before serving. Delicious!

You have another 5 star review! I made this last night with really nice asparagus. We like fresh asparagus to be quite simple because it's a delicate veggie and we usually eat it as a starter (appetizer, as Americans call it). This simple combo of butter, grated fresh Parmesan and finely grated lemon rind was "more than the sum of its parts" -- it was totally delicious with the al dente asparagus! I made a little more of this mixture than the recipe calls for, because the asparagus was thick and fleshy and I had about 18 large spears. Thanks so much for a keeper!

Oh, darlin' Pets, this is marvelous. Just the right amount of seasonings into the butter and melt--it did! Love this! Made for the Asparagus event in Vegetarian and Cook-a-Thon in Cooking Photos.

A really nice change of pace from the "traditional" way I make asparagus. My entire family ate thier vegetables this time! I mixed the toppings all together as the recipe said and it did get a little "clumpy", I think next time I may mix all but the cheese and then just sprinkle the cheese on top to see if that speads it out a little better. Great recipe either way though- thanks for posting!

This was delicious! This would be a great side dish for a variety of meals and tonight we had it with Lemon Chicken Spaghetti Toss. They definitely complimented each other. Thanks for a keeper!

I made this for my sister-in-law who is on the South Beach diet and she loved it! I will make this again... South beach or no South Beach!
