    Herbed Marinated Jumbo Asparagus With Sardo Cheese

    Marinating blanched asparagus spears before they hit the hot grill will infuse them with an herbaceous, slightly spicy flavor as they char. If you can't find sardo cheese, Pecorino Romano is a nice, easy-to-find substitute.

    asparagus, peeled 1 ½ Inch from the top
    2
    tablespoons
    garlic, minced
