We love this. I cook the asparagus my usual way - add spears to boiling salted water, and simmer until they turn bright green (about 2 mins). Drain, and immerse in a bowl of iced water - heat the butter in the skillet, add the asparagus and and let it heat through. I then add the almonds, and stir. I sprinkle the cheese over the asparagus on the serving plate - this all avoids soggy almonds, over-cooked asparagus, and gluey cheese. Delicious and easy. Thanks!

I always add chopped garlic when I sautee asparagus...And like Caroline C said, add the premesean cheese just before serving.

I made this as a side dish for a Sunday family dinner and received wonderful reviews on it! The only thing I did different was that after I bolied the asparagus, I drained them and then immediately put them in ice water. I laighly sauteed the almonds in butter and then turned the heat down and added the asparagus. I added the cheese after I removed it from the pan to elliminate a big string mess and to make a great presentation. This is a great way to get your kids to eat asparagus and almonds are an excellent source of nutrition!
