Asparai alla Parmigiana ... Asparagus with Parmesan cheese

Veggies are 30% off this week at our Cali Albertsons.

Asparagus with Parmesan cheese

2 lbs Asparagus
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup shredded parmesan (not the gross powdered kraft stuff)
5 TB butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
 I won't eat the asparagus unless it still is crunchy. If you like it mushy, then by all means, cook longer.
Trim and Peel asparagus.
Smear the bottom of a rectangular dish with butter. arrange asparagus in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with salt and cheese and dot each row with butter.

Here it is prepped

Bake on upper rack in the oven until a light golden crust forms. (about 15 minutes).
