I love asparagus and one of my favorite asparagus recipes is sauteed asparagus. I picked up some asparagus on my visit to farmers market this past weekend and immediately made this easy and amazing lemon parmesan breadcrumbs asparagus.
I love lemon, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, and they are great with asparagus.
What I love about the recipe is the simplicity, yet it adds so much texture and flavors to the plain asparagus. Every bite is bursting with the citrusy lemon juice, with a tint of Parmesan cheese. The texture is crunchy because of the breadcrumbs.
It’s a wonderful vegetable dish to have this Spring/Summer, and all year long.
