Cold weather just cries out for warm, cheesy side dishes. As soon as temperatures start to drop, you switch from the healthy, light baked zucchini recipes to roasted potatoes and hot steak. However, one-pan recipes are lovely any time of year! Less work, more eating…

  5. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes

Cooking times may vary. Keep an eye on the asparagus for desired tenderness. If you like a soft spear, cook 10 minutes longer. For a more crispy spear, remove at 25 minutes and test. As always, you can adjust the ingredients to your desired taste.

I like to select a thinner asparagus spear because they tend to be less stringy. You can also cut off more of the bottom (stem) if you prefer a softer texture.

If you would rather skip the cheese and try for a lighter, healthier asparagus, try this Easy and Healthy Baked Asparagus Recipe instead. It’s perfect with seasoned shrimp.
