We make this recipe but over the years have adjusted it it make it a main dish by cutting the asparagus into 1 inch diagonal lenghts before cooking, then adding 8 oz cooked mostoccoli and 1 lb boiled spiced shrimp. A family favorite that just sort of evolved. My husband even adds red pepper flakes!

We family loves this dish although I did not boil the asparagus but instead roasted them. Sometimes I wrap them in prosciutto. Either way this is easy and delicious!

Super easy and delicious. I also add a bit of fresh lemon juice with the cheese and butter.
