Since asparagus was on the menu for baby this week, I thought it would only be appropriate to add a little asparagus goodness to the Big People’s diet as well. Here’s my simple 10 minute recipe for sauteéd garlic asparagus.
2 Tbsp. olive oil (or enough to coat the asparagus and the bottom of the skillet)
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and snap off the woody ends of the asparagus by bending the stalk at the natural breaking point (usually about 1-2″ from the base). Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and asparagus and sauteé for 5 minutes (or until desired tenderness is achieved), tossing occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
Optional: Sprinkle some fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top. Yum!
