Grilled Asparagus I love asparagus. My husband and I eat it at least once a week, but the traditional garlic butter flavor can get tiring. So I came up with a tasty and nutritious grilled lemon parmesan asparagus!

  1. Combine all ingredients, except parmesan into sealable bowl.
  2. Mix contents together.
  3. Place lid on bowl and let marinate for 30 minutes, shaking every 5 minutes.
  4. Heat flat grill or pan to 350 F
  5. Lay asparagus on flat grill or frying pan.
  6. Pour marinade over asparagus.
  7. Cook on each side for 5 minutes.

Yumm! Was a little cornenced as I put this all together that there would be too much moisture, but it turned out great. I think it would be easy to substitute other veggies and work with what is in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe.
