      I sauteed the shallots and pine nuts in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Adding 2 pounds of asparagus. Covered and cooked for 2 minutes. I transferred the asparagus to a oven proof dish then topped with the cheese mixture (which I added the juice, pine nut and the shallots that remained in the pan). For they would have been lost in the bottom of the pan. Do watch under the broiler for it does brown quickly. This is sweet and creamy. Yummy!
