Prepare the asparagus by rinsing them thoroughly, break off any tough, white bottoms and discard. Cut into 1 to 2 inch sections, slicing the asparagus at a slight diagonal.
Fill a medium sized saucepan half way with water, bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and reduce heat slightly to a simmer. Parboil the asparagus for exactly 2 minutes. Drain the hot water.
While the asparagus are still hot, toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, parmesan cheese, and lemon rind. Salt and pepper to taste. Sever warm or room temperature.
