Mono comes with xsp, a stand-alone ASP.NET web server you can use for 
testing. Running it is as simple as running the 'xsp' executable in the 
directory your ASP.NET website is in (or using 'xsp --root <folder>').

I have used Apache + mod_mono in the past to host my blog (running 
BlogEngine.NET). This is the Apache configuration I used to run it: 
http://pastebin.com/f5264c981. Probably the paths look a bit different 
on a Mac.
