Serves 4

Ingredients
• 2 1/4 pounds asparagus, spears trimmed
• 1/4 cup butter, plus extra for greasing
• 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
• 2 1/2 ounces Emmenthal cheese, thinly sliced
• 1 1/4 cups Bechamel Sauce

Directions
Cook the asparagus in salted, boiling water for approximately 15 minutes, then drain and pat dry.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F.
