I love asparagus.  Cooked right  they are  tender with a slight crisp to them.  Usually, I am not a fan of boiled asparagus.  They are usually mushy and lacking in flavor.

All that changed when  I found this recipe for asparagus from Simply Recipes.  They are boiled for only two minutes.  Drained and then tossed with some high quality olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and lemon zest.  Perfect.  Some of the best asparagus I have eaten and so simple and  quick to make.  You can find the recipe here.


  1. I too LOVE asparagus. Wish I could still find some at this time of year. This looks very crunchy and tasty, Geraldine.

  2. We too adore asparagus and many years ago lived near some asparagus fields.
