Roast Asparagus Tips

Snap off the woody dry ends of the asparagus. A quicker way when cooking a large bunch like this is to snap the end off one first, then line them all up on your chopping board and slice through the rest at the same length.

Drizzle with a delicious olive oil/garlic mixture.

Roast! I roast these for only 10 minutes first to avoid over cooking them. Just make sure your oven is preheated!

Top with mozzarella cheese and broil (or grill)! You could use whatever cheese you have on hand here, preferably a nice mild melting cheese.


1 bunch of asparagus, woody ends trimmed…

3 T. butter, melted

1/2 tsp. my house seasoning (equal parts garlic powder, onion powder and pepper…combine and store in an airtight container)

1 T. grated parmesan cheese

3/4 C. shredded mozzarella cheese

italian seasoning


Line a baking sheet with some tinfoil. Place the asparagus on the baking sheet and drizzle with the melted butter. Sprinkle the house seasoning and parmesan cheese over the top. Place in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove and top with the mozzarella cheese and a little sprinkling of italian seasoning over the top. Return to the oven for an additional 5-7 minutes to melt the cheese and let it begin to brown.
