Number of Servings: 2


    2 cups trimmed, fresh asparagus
    1 tsp olive oil
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp balsamic vinegar
    2 Tbsp water
    1.5 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
    4 TB shredded parmesan cheese


Preheat broiler. Heat ovenproof frying pan over medium high heat

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]

Serving Size: 2-1 cup servings
