Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Asparagus, Asparaguses or Asparaguy?

Asparagus from Nevada?   You betcha!

I tried to find a new main dish recipe for asparagus but didn’t have much luck so I just went with my old standby:   sprinkle with EVOO, parmesan cheese and bake.   Easy-peasy.

I have always loved asparagus.   These were especially yummy and I could totally tell how much difference the freshness made.   Tender, spring asparagus with a nice nutty taste.   Mmm, hmmm.

Look at how beautiful they are!   I had to do a close up on the purple tips just because I was so impressed.    The CSA newsletter that came in the veggie box warned me that these are a rare treat so I don’t expect to see them again next week … but, I wish I would …

Do you have a good asparagus recipe to share?  I’d love to see it.

  1. I love asparagus! I just recently planted some in my garden and have had the pleasure of getting them in my CSA box a few times. So delicious! I usually roast mine as well…although I have never tried it with parmesan…must add that to the mix!
