1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
3 tablespoons butter — room temperature
1/2 cup packed grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tablespoon fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried
1 large garlic clove — chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Cook asparagus in large pot of boiling salted water until just crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain well. Arrange asparagus on broiler proof platter. Preheat broiler. Beat butter in medium bowl until fluffy. Beat in cheese, basil, garlic and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drop butter mixture by teaspoonfuls over asparagus.

Broil asparagus until topping browns, watching closely to avoid burning, about 3 minutes. Serve hot.
