Baked Mozzarella Asparagus


Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables to cook especially during the week nights. They are so easy to cook and take almost no time. I usually just baked them with some of my favorite seasonings . I had some leftover mozzarella cheese in my fridge from this weekend and decided to sprinkle some on top… I am so happy I did because what a delicious cheesy creation it turned out to be!

Yield: 4

1 bundle of asparagus (about 15 spears)
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp onion powder
Sprinkle of Italian seasoning
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wash and pat down asparagus’, then with a sharp knife cut an inch off the stems. In a baking dish drizzle olive oil on top of asparagus’, add seasonings and mix with tongs or hands until evenly coated.

2. Bake for 15 minutes, then with a spatula flip and bake for another 10 minutes. Once cooked, heat oven to broil, sprinkle cheese on top of cooked asparagus and broil for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Once melted sprinkle top with Italian seasoning. Enjoy this cheesy delicious dish!
