EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Sprinkle individual servings with shredded Parmesan cheese.

If asparagus is not available, substitute trimmed green beans. Green beans require a little longer cooking time than asparagus, so in step 2, first cook the beans in butter until crisp-tender. Then add mushrooms and continue as directed.
