Asparagus And Pecorino Recipe

This asparagus and pecorino recipe is so easy to make, and so satisfying, that it will likely make it to The Food Republic Hall of Fame. But first things first.

Asparagus is the quintessential spring vegetable. It's also a favorite go-to of ours for entertaining. It requires very little prep and cooks up quickly. We love it with lemon and any hard cheese grated over the top.

Here, we picked pecorino, but feel free to swap in parmesan if you prefer. This recipe is for a crowd, perfect for a holiday gathering or party, so scale down to one bunch if you aren't serving it to the masses.
