Baked Asparagus Omelet

There's no vegetable that says spring more than asparagus, which is harvested from February to June. (Don't be fooled by the hothouse variety that's available year-round-it's less flavorful and more expensive.) The distinctive sweetness of asparagus makes it a good complement to rice, pasta, eggs and fish. And you can't beat it simply steamed and served with melted butter and a squeeze of lemon.
