Fresh asparagus is accented by a perfectly flavored herb butter that is so easy to prepare.
Cook asparagus in boiling water in large uncovered skillet on medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender-crisp. Drain well. Place on serving dish.
Stir parsley, basil and pepper into melted butter. Pour over asparagus. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Spring Thyme Asparagus: Use 1/2 teaspoon each McCormick® Garlic Powder and Thyme Leaves in place of the parsley and basil.
Herbed Green Beens: Use fresh green beans, stem ends snapped off, in place of the asparagus.
