Do you like asparagus, but aren't exactly sure how to make it at home? Here's a quick easy way that I make it. The prep time is about five minutes.
1 Bunch Asparagus
1-2 Tbl Garlic Powder
1-2 Tbl Olive Oil
Olive Oil Spray
1/2-1 Cup Cheese (I used shredded white sharp cheddar.)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper to Taste
*Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
To start, rinse the asparagus in water, and then, cut about two inches off of the bottom ends.
Put in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. 425 is a really high temperature. If your oven cooks on the high side, watch them carefully so they don't burn.
Put the shredded cheese on top. Microwave for about 45 seconds to melt the cheese.
This dish was ready in about 40 minutes after prep time and cook time. We were baking our fish in the oven at the same time.
This turned out to be a great and really tasty side dish to go with our fish we had for dinner. I think it would go with a lot of different meals well! If you're afraid of asparagus, I recommend trying it this way. Besides, cheese makes everything taste good!
