An Italian Asparagus Recipe

asparagus recipe

This asparagus recipe is very simple. It is very common in Veneto and makes a perfect starter course.

The cheese is really important with this dish, if you don’t use the right cheese it changes the recipe completely and the end result is nowhere near as delicious.

I of course have the added problem that if the cheese isn't right I am going to have a complaining husband ... boy can he go on!

Ingredients

A bunch of fresh green asparagus.

100 gr, of grated Grana Padano or Parmigiano cheese.

50 gr, butter.

A dash of salt and pepper.

half a litre of milk.

4 eggs.

150 gr of bread crumbs

Preparation

• Clean the asparagus and remove the heads from them.

• Boil the asparagus in salted water, drain and allow them to cool.

• Line an oven dish with butter.

• Beat the eggs and add salt, pepper, milk and the bread crumbs.

• Spread some of the egg mix on the base of the oven dish and place the asparagus into the dish.

• Cover the asparagus with the egg mix and sprinkle with cheese.

• Cook in the oven at 160°C for 30 minutes
