4 ounces heavy whipping cream
1 ounce Parmesan cheese
½ pound asparagus
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons chicken broth, low salt

*
paprika
to taste
*

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Mix the cream and parmesan cheese, bring to a boil, and then simmer for five minutes. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.

Trim tough ends of the asparagus and peel them. Then blanch them for one minute in boiling salted water and then submerge in ice water.

Place the asparagus into a baking dish. Add chicken broth and butter and oven bake until heated through about 3 to 5 minutes.

Arrange the asparagus spears on a plate, season with salt, fresh ground black pepper and paprika, and then drizzle with parmesan cheese cream sauce.

Grilled asparagus

You can also grill the asparagus instead of baking. Arrange the blanched asparagus spears on a hot grill, turning every 30 seconds for 3 to 5 minutes until slightly charred grill marks are made.

Arrange the grilled asparagus spears on a plate, season with salt, fresh ground black pepper, and paprika, and then drizzle with the parmesan cheese cream sauce.
