2 lbs. fresh asparagus, cleaned, trimmed
1/4 tsp. pepper
6 eggs
1 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 Tbs. virgin olive oil
1 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp. salt
Cooking spray or 1 Tbs. oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray or oil an 8x8x2 pan, bottom and sides. Steam asparagus until tender (best if fork just pierces). Let cool. Cut into small pieces. Beat eggs with 1-tablespoon olive oil. Add asparagus, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Add cheese and bread crumbs to mixture. Pour into prepared pan and drizzle a little olive oil on top. Bake approximately 45 minutes. Top should be nice and brown. Cool and cut into squares.
