Fresh, hot and so good! This fresh asparagus dish doesn't get any simpler -- or much better.

Grilled Asparagus with Pancetta, Pepato Cheese & HerbsIngredients
1 1/2 pounds jumbo or extra-large fresh asparagus, trimmed
Olive oil, as needed
2 tablespoons grated pepato cheese (Romano cheese with peppercorns) or plan Romano
3 ounces thinly-sliced pancetta or 3 slices American bacon, cooked crisp, then crumbled
1 tablespoon chopped Italian (flat leaf) parsley
1 tablespoon shredded basil
1 tablespoon shredded mint


1. Generously coat asparagus spears with olive oil.

2. Grill over medium-hot heat, turning frequently, until asparagus is lightly browned and tender-crisp, about 6 minutes for extra-large and a minute or two more for jumbo.

Arrange on a warmed serving platter. Sprinkle with cheese, pancetta and herbs.
