Tips for roasted asparagus

Cut off the dry, woody ends of the asparagus. A quicker way to cook a large bunch like this is to tear off one end first, then line them up on your cutting board and cut the rest to the same length.

Sprinkle them with a delicious mixture of olive oil and garlic.

Roast them! I roast them first for only 10 minutes to avoid overcooking them. Just make sure your oven is preheated!

Garnish them with mozzarella cheese and roast (or roast) them! You can use any cheese you have on hand here, preferably a good, soft, melting cheese.

Ingredients

1 bunch of asparagus, woody tip cut off .

3 cups of butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon of my homemade seasoning (equal parts garlic powder, onion powder and pepper… to be mixed and kept in an airtight container)

1 ton of grated parmesan cheese

3/4 C. grated mozzarella cheese

Italian seasoning

Directions

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the asparagus on the plate and sprinkle with the melted butter. Sprinkle the top with the homemade seasoning and parmesan cheese. Put in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove and cover with the mozzarella cheese and some Italian seasoning. Return to the oven for an additional 5-7 minutes to melt the cheese and let it begin to brown.
