How Do you Cook Asparagus?

Asparagus may be baked, pan-fried, steamed or boiled. Though there are several methods for preparing asparagus. Oven baked asparagus is my favorite. The prep time is minimal with great results.

How to Make Baked Asparagus?

  • Trim ends layout onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Drizzle olive oil over asparagus, season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  • Top asparagus with Mozzarella cheese, butter, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.
  • Baked until the asparagus is desired tenderness.

How to pick the right vegetable?

For best results, look for asparagus that is straight and firm and not mushy and soft. They should be a rich green and may have purple highlights.

What Kind of Cheese Can I Use?

Though we used Mozzarella in this recipe, Colby Jack, Provolone or Mexican will all work.

    These are so delicious and I don’t even like Asparagus. They are so crunchy yet so soft and the cheese adds the best flavor!
