2 cups trimmed, fresh asparagus
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp black pepper

4 TB shredded parmesan cheese
Place olive oil in a hot, ovenproof frying pan. Add asparagus, in one layer across the pan, add pepper and balsamic vinegar and toss briefly to coat. Saute for one - three minutes, depending on the thickness of the stalks. [Asparagus should still be firm and very bright green]. Add water and cover for a minute.
Mix the cheeses. Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle cheese over asparagus and place under broiler until bubbling and brown.
[if grilling, grill asparagus with pepper and balsamic vinegar and top with cheese. Close lid until cheese melts]
