Asparagus Italian-style

Here is a simple recipe to prepare for asparagus, a popular Italian item served as a side-dish

This will accommodate 4 servings

Ingredients you will need

1 lb fresh asparagus spears
3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons freshly grated parmesan cheese or asiago cheese

To prepare:

Snap off the tough ends of asparagus (the word in Italian is asparagi).

Remove the scales from stalks with a knife or veggie peeler, if desired. Arrange the asparagus in a veggie steamer over boiling water. Cover and steam from 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp tender, keep warm. Combine the tomato and the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.  Make sure you stir well. To serve, spoon tomato mixture over aspargus, sprinkle with cheese.
