I've only made asparagus a few times and this has been the best recipe so far! I cut down on the parmesean cheese about half and added some fresh lemon juice. It was very yummy! will be making this again!


  1. Wash Asparagus under running water to remove any residue.
  2. Cut half inch off the bottom of each asparagus stalk.
  3. Bring One quart salted water to a rapid, rolling boil.
  4. While water is coming to boil, melt butter in medim size bowl in microwave.
  5. Drop Asparagus in boiling water.
  6. Watch close, boil Asparagus only about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Asparagus will become a very vibrant green.
  8. Pull Asparagus out of water and place in bowl containing butter.
  9. Season with salt, lemon pepper, and sprinkle with couple tablespoons of cheese.
  10. Toss to coat the asparagus with butter and seasonings.
  11. Plate asparagus, or place in serving bowl and top with remaining parmesan cheese (or to taste or visual appeal).
