Recipe Notes

  • For easier cleanup cover the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Gruyere, fontina, asiago or an Italian cheese blend would all be great substitutes for the mozzarella. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the olive oil and garlic in a bowl. 
  2. Lay the asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet or in a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour the olive over the asparagus and turn to coat them completely. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 15 minutes. 
  5. Sprinkle the cheeses over the asparagus and continue to bake until cheese is melted and beginning to brown.
