My Favorite Way with Asparagus



This dish is quintessential Italian (or at least, Northern Italian!). I grew up with this and sometimes this is all it takes to make a simple, yet very satisfying dish (especially now while asparagus is nice and fresh!).


1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed

1 egg

Parmesan cheese, grated



Place the asparagus in a pot of boiling salted water. Cook until tender.

In the meantime, melt some butter in a frying pan. Add an egg and cook it until the whites are done but the yolk is still runny.

Plate the asparagus and place the egg on top of them. Drizzle the butter from the pan over it all.

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese!
