Number of Servings: 1

1 Pound(s) Asparagus, 6 to 8 medium
spears per person
Cut away the lower 4th of the asparagus and peel the stalk. This way
the entire spear is edible will cook more quickly and at the same
rate. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a casserole or skillet
large enough to accommodate the asparagus in one single flat layer.
Add the asparagus to the water, cover and quickly bring the water back
to a boil. Uncover the skillet and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until
the asparagus are just tender. They should be just cooked through but
still with some crunch left it. Serving suggestions: For 1 pound
asparagus, melt 4 tablespoons butter and mash in 2 hard boiled eggs.
Season to taste with salt, pepper and snipped fresh chives. Dip warm
asparagus into the mixture and accompany with bread. Serve asparagus
at room temperature, either plain or dressed with vinaigrette and
accompanied with goat cheese bruschetta. Yield: 2 servings Recipe By
