This quick five-ingredient dish may make a regular appearance on your menus.
lb fresh asparagus spears
package (6 oz) sliced fresh portabella mushrooms
cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing
tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In large shallow dish, toss asparagus, mushrooms and dressing. Place vegetables in grill basket (grill “wok”).
Cover and grill vegetables over medium heat 8 to 12 minutes, shaking basket or stirring vegetables occasionally, until asparagus is crisp-tender. Sprinkle vegetables with basil and cheese. Cover and grill 3 to 4 minutes longer or until cheese is slightly melted.
When grilling asparagus, the size of the spears and variation in grill fires affect how quickly this vegetable cooks. Cook the spears just until crisp-tender.
