    Sautéed Asparagus with Shaved Parmesan

    Source of Recipe

    From "Mad Hungry: Cravings" by Lucinda Quinn

    Recipe Introduction

    "A fresh, simple preparation that you'll find in a legit Italian trattoria during asparagus season, or displayed in a gourmet-counter food case any time of year."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    ◦ 2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed and cut on the bias into 2-inch pieces
    ◦ 1 teaspoon coarse salt
    ◦ Rounded ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    ◦ 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
    ◦ Juice of 1 orange
    ◦ 3 ounces shaved Parmesan cheese to taste


    Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the oil.

    When it shimmers, add the asparagus, salt, and pepper and sauté, stirring frequently, until the asparagus is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the orange zest and cook for 1 minute. Add the orange juice and stir a few times.

    Transfer to a serving platter and scatter the Parmesan over the top. Serve immediately.

    Serves 6
