Method

Arrange the cooked asparagus in rows on a dish and coat the heads of each row with Sauce Mornay. Cover two-thirds of the unsauced part with a band of buttered paper and coat the rest with more sauce. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and glaze quickly under the salamander. Remove the paper and serve immediately.
