Now that April is upon us, it means that asparagus is coming into season! This dip is a quick and easy way to utilize this versatile vegetable.

Ingredients

1 bunch fresh asparagus (approximately 14-18 spears)
1 jar artichoke hearts
3 cloves fresh garlic
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
Breadcrumbs (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Wash and drain asparagus. Then steam the stalks for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut asparagus into small pieces and mash them. Place them in a bowl with artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, minced garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Mix well; add salt and pepper to taste.

Pour into a baking dish, and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake for about 20 minutes.

Enjoy this hot, seasonal dip with hearty sourdough bread or crackers!
