  1. Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus spears and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or to desired firmness. Drain off excess oil, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.


Note: The butter can be substituted with extra olive oil. I use butter for the flavor.
