4 tablespoons unsalted butter 
1/2 pound asparagus [230g], trimmed 
3/4 cup water [180ml]

1 cup crumbled farmer cheese [6 ounces, 170g] 
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Chop the onion finely. 
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion, asparagus, and water and simmer over low heat until the asparagus is tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
