Last night I made this without the added mozzarella cheese and it was delicious – either way would be good, depending on whether you wanted it a bit lighter or not.
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
3 T. melted butter
Equal parts garlic powder, onion powder and pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
Shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lay the asparagus on the sheet, trying to keep them in a single layer.
Pour the melted butter on top and make sure the asparagus are all covered (I use my hands to roll them around a little to coat them with the butter).
Sprinkle the spices on top.
Grate the parmesan cheese on top.
Bake them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until they are tender.
If you want to add the mozzarella cheese, top the asparagus with the mozzarella cheese and return them to the oven for another 5-7 minutes until the cheese starts to melt and start browning.
