Prep your asparagus by rinsing and snapping off the ends, and peel and mince your garlic.
To a large saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, asparagus, garlic, salt, and pepper. Sautee on high until the garlic starts to brown (about 5-7 minutes), tossing occasionally.
Add the cream (or half and half or milk) and nutmeg and simmer until about half of the liquid has evaporated.
Turn heat source off and add the Parmesan, tossing to coat the asparagus in the creamy Parmesan sauce. Enjoy hot!
Once you bring your asparagus home, you can keep it fresh for up to a week if you store it correctly. Learn how in the post!
