Cheesy Baked Asparagus
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?
Adapted from: Janets Appalachian Kitchen
Cover a baking sheet with foil.
Lay clean asparagus flat onto the foil.
Drizzle the asparagus with the melted butter.
Combine the garlic powder,
onion powder, pepper and salt.
Sprinkle over the asparagus.
Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top.
Bake in a 400 degree preheated
oven for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle
the Mozzarella Cheese on top.
Sprinkle with Italian seasonings.
Bake an additional 5-7 minutes or until
the cheese starts to brown.
Place on a serving plate and serve.

what’s not to love – cheese and asparagus together? my favorite veg
I love asparagus! I did not tried them with cheese yet 😉😊
I started putting cheese on mine and never looked back! Bacon is another favorite. I cook it, crumble it and throw it in with the asparagus.
Great recipe, thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to try it!
You won’t be sorry it was so good! Thanks and enjoy!
Definitely going to try this on some of the last I can get this season 🙂 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 😂
Hahaha Sorry but you won’t want to be mad when you taste it! 💕
Looks yummy Diane!
Thanks it is so flavorful!
Okay, this looks delicious!
It definitely was Jacquie! Thanks so much!
That’s looks so good! I love asparagus!!!!
It had so much flavor! Thank you so much!
I tried your previous recipe with just the parmesan cheese backed in the oven, and that’s the only way I eat it now!
Sometimes simple is best! I still like it with cooked and crumbled bacon added with the parmesan too. I’m so glad you like it Joni!
Nope. I’ve never been able to cook asparagus just right. I only eat them when we eat out.
As long as you can get it that’s great! It is so tasty!
This looks tasty.
Thank you Sumit!
Really – asparagus is over already and it’s not even Summer yet!
Homegrown asparagus is the best!
WOW! That looks so good!
Thank you! I have to stop picking my asparagus now so it can seed so I savored this!
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 🙂 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!
Anytime, Diane 🙂 I should have known you are a garden master, as well as a great chef! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
The garden is joint effort with my husband. Thank you for such a nice comment!
A yummy way to enjoy asparagus, so nice to have them in your own garden!
I have been growing them for about 25 years now. I always look forward to spring!
I love asparagus and your recipe looks delicious! 💕
Thanks so much!
Really, can it get any better than this. A great combination, our mouths water just reading the description.
Hahaha it really was a fabulous combination of flavor. Thank you for you nice comment!
Yum! This looks fantastic. We’ve cooked a similar recipe to this before but this one sounds much better. (and simpler!) Thanks again Diane.
There’s not a bad asparagus recipe…hahahaha Thanks so much Holly!
Yum!! These look perfect!!
Aw thank you!!!
Looking forward to trying this recipe. Thank you!
You’re welcome Tina! Enjoy it is really good.
