Balsamic-Parmesan Asparagus for 1 Weight Watchers Point



If you need your veggies to be Flavorful, then this is a good one at only 1 Weight Watchers point per serving!

I, however, have a problem with microwaving my veggies, and I especially have a problem with microwaving anything covered in plastic wrap. Toxic chemicals anybody? I typed the recipe as it appeared, but I prefer to steam my asparagus. To each his own. 

Ingredients:

1 pound asparagus spears, trimmed
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup preshredded fresh Parmesan cheese

Directions:

Place asparagus in a microwave-safe dish and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at HIGH for 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.  Drizzle with vinegar and oil.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cheese.

Yields: 4 servings
Serving Size: 1/4 of the asparagus
Points: 1
