Aged Gouda has a sharp, nutty flavor that is slightly more pronounced than in younger versions of the Dutch cheese; Parmesan or pecorino can also be used.

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound thin asparagus, trimmed
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 ounces aged Gouda cheese, shaved


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus spears, and saute until they are tender and bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large platter, and top with Gouda. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

Shave cheese into delicate curls with a sharp paring knife or vegetable peeler.
