Yankee Gardener's Fresh Asparagus Gruyere
1 pound fresh asparagus; fresh from your organic garden or the local grocery store
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (or your favorite cheese)
Clean the asparagus of any dirt by filling a large pan or bowl with cold water and soak the asparagus for 1 hour. Remove the asparagus from the water and find the point at the end of each stalk where it breaks easily and snaps off.
Bring a saucepan full of water to a boil. Add salt and the asparagus. Cover until the water returns to a boil. Uncover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 - 12 minutes. Drain well and place the asparagus in a baking dish, long enough to fit. Add the butter while still warm. Spread the cheese evenly over the top and place in a 350°oven. Bake 8-10 minutes or until cheese is just melted. Garnish with slivers of red and/or green bell pepper and serve immediately. There will not be any leftovers. Hmmm...good!
