Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • one bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 of one medium red onion, sliced vertically into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • about 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with foil for easier cleanup.
  2. Add the asparagus and onions to the baking sheet, evenly drizzle with olive oil, evenly sprinkle with salt and pepper, and use your hands to toss to coat evenly.
  3. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until asparagus is crisp-tender.
  4. Remove baking sheet from the oven, evenly sprinkle the cheese over middle section of the asparagus, and return the baking sheet to the oven for about 5 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Alternatively, place the baking sheet under the broiler on high for about 3 to 4 minutes if you prefer your cheese to be more golden browned rather than simply just melted. If you’re using the broiler, keep a very close eye on things since food can burn very quickly under the broiler. Recipe is best warm and fresh.

  1. I appreciate being able to buy all kinds of produce year around, but I especially like asparagus in the spring. I think the stalks are a little thinner and more delicate. This looks wonderful and I am going to make it this weekend–(probably on the grill)!

  2. Yum this looks amazing! I was an adult before I ever even tried asparagus(!) as my parents were not adventurous vegetable eaters. My husband, daughters and I love it prepared any way, but my mom not so much. I am going to try one more time to convert her with this recipe, thanks!

  3. WHY have I never thought to add cheese to asparagus?! YUM!!

  4. I really love your recipes, but I wish I could save them to Pintrest. Do you have a way of doing that that I simply do not see? Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes!

  5. I apologize, I found the post area for pinterst..sorry for bothering you!

  6. Roasted asparagus is so good with cheese. I make mine almost the same way, but I add a little garlic with the salt and pepper.

  7. This is such an easy and delicious side dish idea! I love it! Perfect for Spring and Summer dinners!

  8. Look at all that cheeeese! This looks like the perfect side dish for summer.
