Buttered Asparagus

Serves: 6
Total Calories: 34


2 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus or 2 packages frozen asparagus
1/4 cup water
butter or margarine
Salt and pepper to taste


For fresh asparagus, clean and stem. For either kind of asparagus, cut on bias into bite-size pieces and put in saucepan. (Cutting the asparagus spears on the bias assures you of tender asparagus.) Put 1/4 cup water over the pieces and after bringing to boil, turn heat down to medium-low and cook until crisp-tender. Take care water does not evaporate completely. Add butter or margarine, salt and pepper to taste and shake to distribute evenly.
