1 bunch asparagus
3 T butter
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Trim about 1/4" off the bottom of each stalk of asparagus.
2. In a large pan, melt butter over medium-high heat; add garlic and asparagus.
3. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, shaking occasionally to make sure asparagus stays covered in butter. For more well-done asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for another 5-10 minutes.
4. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper; toss to coat. Serve warm.
