Steamed Asparagus

The kids can help with the rinsing and breaking off the ends. My kids think asparagus taste like green beans.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 lbs asparagus
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T Parmesan cheese
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • lemon pepper, if desired

Instructions:

Rinse the asparagus, break off and discard tough ends. (Just snap off the woody end where it breaks easily.) Cut each spear into 2 or 3 diagonal slices. Fill a medium saucepan half way with water and bring to a boil. Add asparagus and simmer for 2 minutes; drain and place in  a bowl. While hot, toss asparagus with remaining ingredients. Serve warm or at room temperature.
