Asparagus with Cheese

24 medium stalks asparagus

3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil

1/3 cup water

1/2 to 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Freshly ground black pepper

Wash asparagus and snap off the tough ends. Dry stalks thoroughly on paper towels and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces.

Warm oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the asparagus to sauté for about a minute. Add water, turn heat to high and cook uncovered for 4 minutes or until the asparagus is just tender and the water has evaporated. Shake skillet occasionally to prevent sticking

Stir in grated Parmesan and add pepper. Add small amount of salt if desired.
