This lovely, simple-to-prepare spring dish highlights the asparagus rather than hiding it. The delicate topping of Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs complements the asparagus flavor and looks impressive. -Adeline Piscitelli, Sayreville, New Jersey

"quick and easy enough for a weekday meal. Husband commented that it was as good as any asparagus that he has ever had--including highfalutin restaurants. I did reduce the amount of butter to cut the fat."
