    Chef Traunfeld has experimented his whole life with infusing herbs & food. In this dish he uses sage and lemon to create a perfect balance of delicate flavors that embellish a dish yet somehow never overpower it.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 450°. Toss the asparagus with the olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Spread on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until the spears are just tender when pierced with a knife.
    2. 2
      In a small skillet, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the sage leaves and cook, stirring often, until the butter is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
    3. 3
      Transfer the asparagus to a warmed platter and spoon the sage-lemon butter on top. Garnish with the lemon zest, top with shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and serve.

      This recipe single handedly taught me to like asparagus. I can't do without it now. Even buy it off season and use rubbed sage. I don't use quite as much sage though. TY TY TY
