A spring sandwich...

One of the many gifts of spring this valley offers up is delicious, local grown asparagus.

Here is a simple, fast sandwich to enjoy while this crop is at its finest.

Spring Asparagus Sandwich

6-8 spears of asparagus
sourdough bread
fresh mozzarella cheese
Walla Walla sweet onion mustard
olive oil 
salt and pepper

Preheat oven at 400 degrees.  Toss asparagus with a teaspoon or two of olive oil, arrange on a baking sheet, dust with salt and pepper.  Roast asparagus for approximately 8 minutes, a little more if you like your asparagus well done and soft, a little less if you like it crisp and not so cooked.  
Smear a health amount of mustard on a good piece of bread, such as John Wheatland's sourdough.  
Add roasted asparagus, top with fresh mozzarella cheese.  Put sandwich back into a 400 degree oven just until the cheese has melted and started to bubble, about another ten minutes. 
Allow sandwich to cool slightly and enjoy!
