- 1 bunch green asparagus
- 5 oz of ricotta

Remove any protrusions on the asparagus stalks.
Cut 2 inches from the heads then chop the rest of the stalk.

When the butter has melted, arrange the asparagus heads in a star shape and add the chopped stalks.
Pour balsamic vinegar, cover the pan and simmer for 5 minutes, then remove the lid and cook an additional 5 minutes.
