What to do

  • 1. Heat a skillet over a high heat. Brush the asparagus with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, add a pinch of salt and cook in the pan, along with the tomatoes for about 10 minutes. Turn occasionally until they are slightly charred. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

  • 2. Heat the slices of bread, rub one side of each slice with the garlic and transfer them on to a platter.

  • 3. Arrange the asparagus and cherry tomatoes on the bread. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and, if desired, a sprinkling of Parmigiano.
