Asparagus Puree

Thoroughly wash asparagus bundles (leave the rubber bands on) and trim the bottom by 1 inch.
Cook bundles in boiling water for 7 to 10 minutes depending on asparagus size, making sure not to overcook.
When tender, remove from boiling water and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
Cut asparagus into thirds, saving the tips in one bowl and the bottom two-thirds into another.
Using a blender or food processor, blend bottom 2/3 of asparagus with heavy cream, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper until the mixture becomes a smooth puree (thick but not a paste).
Set aside.
