Poached Eggs and Asparagus

This may be my new favorite mini meal!  It is so easy, delicious, and looks gorgeous, too.  Poaching eggs the old fashioned way may intimidate people, but I did it on my first try by following these steps exactly.

{What you need}
Water for boiling
1 bunch asparagus, washed and tough ends cut off
4 eggs
grated parmasean cheese
cooking spray
sea salt

Bring a pot of water to a boil.
On a tin foil-coverd cookie sheet, spray cooking spray and arrange the asparagus so that they are in a single layer.  Spray the asparagus with cooking spray and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste.  Broil on high for 5 minutes and 20 seconds.

While they are cooking, poach the eggs, according to the steps listed in the link above.  When the asparagus is done,  divide onto four plates and sprinkle with grated parmesean cheese,  letting the heat melt it a little.  Place the poached egg on the asparagus and serve with garlic bread and grapes, or anything else you want!
