This family-friendly side dish is a delicious new take on potatoes au gratin. Yes, it’s still cheesy comfort food, but the fresh asparagus means it won’t leave you in a food coma. If you’ve ever made homemade macaroni and cheese, this technique will be familiar: you’ll make a bechamel sauce and top it with buttery breadcrumbs. In fact, you could double the sauce, toss it with pasta, stick it in the freezer and have mac and cheese ready to go whenever you need a quick dinner. For this dish, look for thick asparagus spears (not the pencil-thin ones) which will hold up better when served.

Grilled veggies so healthy and tasty…..grill any amount you want for just two or more

Aluminum foil 2 sheets

Asparagus (clean and snip hard ends)

Salt/Pepper

Crushed large clove of garlic

Buttered Pam Spray

Parmesan Cheese

Place asparagus (what ever amount suits your needs for one, two or more) on a sheet of aluminum foil

Spray asparagus with buttered Pam

season with even spread of fresh garlic, salt and pepper (to taste) , and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese, cover with other sheet, flip and do same for other side of asparagus…cook until you can pierce with fork…we let ours get wee bit charred, but it is your choice….usually takes about 15 minutes or less to cook.
