    WELL-DRESSED ASPARAGUS
    from "U.S.A. Cookbook" by Sheila Lukins

    When asparagus is plentiful in the spring, I eat it as often and in as many ways as possible. My inspiration for this zesty dish was the visits I made to the many Little Italy communities around the United States. Often, restaurants will serve asparagus embellished with an easy sauce that's made just before the dish is served. A quick sprinkle of parsley finishes it off.

    Serves 4
    INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

    6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    2 cloves garlic, finely minced
    3 tablespoons drained tiny capers
    1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    1 pound medium-thick asparagus, tough ends removed

    PREPARATION

    1. Combine the oil, lemon juice, garlic, capers, and lemon zest in a small saucepan. Place over low heat and cook, swirling the pan, to heat through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the parsley and a generous grinding of black pepper. Remove from the heat.
    2. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil, and cook the asparagus until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and arrange on a serving platter. Spoon the sauce over the asparagus, sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon parsley, and serve immediately.
