Asparagus season is just about over in my yard so I picked the last of my homegrown Asparagus and made this Cheesy Baked Asparagus recipe. Asparagus drizzled with butter, sprinkled with herbs and topped with cheese then baked in the oven……what can be better?

  1. Definitely going to try this on some of the last I can get this season ๐Ÿ™‚ I have so many good asparagus recipes and never enough time to try all of them before it’s out, I want to be mad at you for giving me another amazing-sounding one but I can’t ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. I tried your previous recipe with just the parmesan cheese backed in the oven, and that’s the only way I eat it now!

  3. It’s awesome that you grow your own Asparagus. I never thought about doing that. I just make sure to buy the nice thick asparagus at the market. And they are easy to cook, as you say ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice post, Diane!

    • I have cut back a lot on what I grow. I not only grow asparagus but rhubarb, blueberries, 10 herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, swiss chard, raspberries, peppers and jalapeno peppers. There is nothing better than homegrown. Thank you so much Sir Albertus!

  4. Yum! This looks fantastic. We’ve cooked a similar recipe to this before but this one sounds much better. (and simpler!) Thanks again Diane.
