Skillet Summer Asparagus

Many nights, after a long day in the office, I want a bright and fast side dish to accompany whatever we choose to toss on the grill that evening.

This is a go to. Crisp, bright, seasoned asparagus. Citrus and Parmesan cheese are THE PERFECT TOPPINGS for almost any vegetable, IMO.

I love serving this will grilled steaks, chicken, pork chops, fish. All the things.

Don’t forget to pair with a beautiful Chardonnay if that fits your fancy!
