Cheesy Asparagus



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.
