Grilled Asparagus with Goat Cheese Recipe

This is a quick and easy side dish, combining asparagus with goat cheese for a perfect spring vegetable.  I was planning to roast the asparagus, but then the hinges broke on my oven door, so I can’t cook anything in the oven right now!  I decided to grill them instead, which is something I have never tried before, and it worked pretty well.  I threaded the asparagus on bamboo skewers, so they wouldn’t slip down through the grates of the grill.  You could just lay them crosswise on the grill, but my asparagus was a fairly skinny, so I figured a skewer would be easier.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The heat from the asparagus melts the goat cheese and make a nice creamy sauce to coat the asparagus.
