Foodie Friday: Jack’s Delicious Asparagus

Asparagus 500x500
Our friend Jack brought this to a friend’s annual Memorial Day get-together a few years ago, so I thought I’d share the recipe:

Jack’s Delicious Asparagus

1 T. butter
1 T. olive oil
1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
Salt to taste

1 T balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 Oz. sliced almonds

Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add asparagus and red onion, season with salt, cook until the onion begins to soften (about 5 minutes).
Stir in red bell pepper, continue cooking until the onions begin to caramelize (another 5 minutes).
Remove from heat; add vinegar, cheese, and nuts; toss to combine.

Sit back, and bask in the glow of compliments…..

(Jack said he got this off of the Internet and made a few changes – this looks like the original recipe. We didn’t eat for about an hour after he showed up, so the dish had time for all of the flavors to mix together)
