I love the combo of asparagus and manchego cheese - yum!
yay for another great asparagus recipe! the only way I knew how to eat asparagus was dipped in red pepper vinegar sauce (korean) and wrapped in nori!
Great combination! Manchego is such a great flavorful cheese.
The manchego cheese gives the asparagus an unique flavor.
