Asparagus and Tomatoes Recipe
I'm not sure what to call it other than that.

2 bunches asparagus, ends trimmed.
2-4 tomatoes, depending on size
Shredded Parmesan cheese, to taste
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Put your asparagus in a skillet. Put in some water, cover, and simmer/steam until crisp-tender, but not soft. Spray oblong casserole dish with Pam. Lay asparagus in. I like to lay it with 1/2 of the tips facing one long side and the other 1/2 facing the opposite, so the ends are overlapping in the middle. Slice the tomatoes about 1/4" thick. Lay tomatoes down the center of the dish, covering the ends. Place them so they are overlapping each other about 1/2 way. Sprinkle down middle with Parmesan cheese as desired. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 long enough to melt cheese and heat through. Or you can microwave.

This makes a very pretty presentation for a table, especially in a white dish as it highlights the colors.
