Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus with mozzarella cheese is the best side dish to any meal! Low Carb, Keto AND the perfect way to get your veggies in!
Even non-asparagus fans LOVE this recipe! Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus tastes absolutely amazing…the whole family gets behind this one.
The easiest way to get asparagus into your diet is roasting them. Throw them on a baking sheet or tray and letting the oven work it’s thing. It doesn’t get any easier. But not everyone’s a fan of these green stalks! Coming up with ways for everyone to enjoy them can be a nightmare! That’s where this asparagus recipe comes in! You’re only four main ingredients away from having the best roasted asparagus of your life!
- Asparagus ✓
- Garlic ✓
- Olive oil ✓
- Mozzarella Cheese ✓
HOW TO ROAST ASPARAGUS
- Snap off the woody dry ends of the asparagus. A quicker way when cooking a large bunch like this is to snap the end off one first, then line them all up on your chopping board and slice through the rest at the same length.
- Drizzle with a delicious olive oil/garlic mixture.
- Roast asparagus for only 10 minutes first to avoid over cooking them. Just make sure your oven is preheated!
- Top with mozzarella cheese and broil (or grill)! You could use whatever cheese you have on hand here, preferably a nice mild melting cheese.
All done in less than 15 minutes!

My family goes nuts for this recipe!
Didn’t care for asparagus till this bad boy of a recipe with some smoked cheddar, bomb, thanks a lot.
I have made this delicious recipe a few times already. My husband & I love, love it so much. The flavour is so good. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe.
I love asparagus any way I can get it and garlic is one of my go-to for everything so I did make this dish tonight. I am always up for another recipe to try for variety but I don’t think I will ever eat asparagus any other way now. You sure outdid yourself on this one. I love it. Can’t get enough. Thanks for sharing it.

Really good I use a large bag to toss everything together. Also leftover mashed up on a toast is great!
Lidia A says
I did this Recepie for Dinner tonight and my husband HATES asparagus! He has devoured his plate ? and has been ranting Omg this was so delicious how did you make it. Lol ? Thank You for such an easy and tasty and fast Recepie.
I just found this recipe and it just looks amazing! I think I will roast the garlic first. Can’t wait to find some asparagus so I can try it! Thank you.
Made this last night and it was Fantastic and Easy! My husband said it was like eating Asparagus Pizza 🙂
Asparagus pizza doesn’t sound bad. 😉
Mike Darrish says
Any pizza without pineapple is a good pizza.
Will try the leftovers on toast, too.
How dare you pineapple on pizza is delicious!😂

I used parchment paper, which burned, for some reason. However, I caught it in time, took the burnt paper out and it turned out wonderfully, cooking the broccoli for twelve minutes before putting on the cheese for four. I used sharp cheddar and ghost pepper garlic salt seasoning, along with avocado oil. Thanks for the base recipe, though. Had been looking to make my asparagus a bit more tasty and this more than did the trick. Thanks so much!
Corinna Anderson says
Never made asparagus before tonight. Thank you so much it was delicious and easy to make. The hubby loved it! Only had a Mex cheese blend and it worked very well. This is a permanent side dish in my home now
did you pre heat your oven before putting it in the with baking sheet.. (not all parchment paper are baking sheets.)
Linda E Evans says
WOW – your cheesy asparagus recipe was amazing — I gave it a try tonight and I loved it but even my picky husband loved it – it was easy to make and it was amazing to eat — I will come back to your website for further recipes – THANK YOU !!!!!
Awesome looks good and sounds good to me I gotta make it.
Favourite!! I added fresh parm on top to serve.
It made a little less than I thought it would. It turned out really good though, was quick and easy to make too! My roommate and fiancee loved it!
This was wonderful! Even got my nonveggie eating son to eat 4! Fantastic, simple, easy, and delicious! Thank you!
This is a delicious recipe. I love it, but wanted to boost it with a couple more ingredients. I used thinly sliced mushrooms and onion scattered over the top before roasting. The flavor is phenomenal.
My oven smoked a TON! Delish but I have a house of smoke. What did I do wrong?
Chris A says
Stove might need cleaning, mine smokes also so I just cleaned mine again. It happens.
This is so good and easy! I loved it. It’s the best asparagus I’ve ever had.
My wife and I love it. Thank you
Delicious recipe, and very easy. Thank you.
I just made this recipe for the first time! It’s so delicious. I used garlic powder instead of garlic.
Will make it again, next time with white asparagus!!
Mary Flavelle says
The white asparagus is so popular in Alsace isn’t spring…..yummy…just the thought takes me back there.
So is the nutritional info for four servings or for six. The size and macros would change quite a bit if I divide into four but it’s actually 1 of 6 servings.
Made this tonight wish I had doubled the recipe as it was gone before I could have seconds!
I use the nutritional USDA serving amount on all my information. Hope that helps!
i see the nutritional info but I cant find the serving size. Can anyone tell me how many stalks would be in a serving size to met the nutritional pane?
What temp and for how long? I want to make this tonight! It looks delicious!!
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Bake for 10-15 minutes until vibrant and just beginning to get tender. ENJOY!!
Can you post the recipe please? For some reason I don’t see it anymore.

Looks fantastic! How do I get the garlic all smooth and creamy-looking like that? I’ve minced garlic before but it comes out just little pieces not liquidy like in your video.
Thank you! I sometimes like to use a garlic paste that you can purchase in the produce section by the lettuce. It makes it a little smoother to use and easier to spread. Hope you enjoy your roasted asparagus! They are delicious!
I so love these receipes
I made this with a little adjustment. I didn’t have fresh garlic on hand so I used garlic power, and I brushed the olive oil mixture on. I didn’t use as much cheese as I should have, which I will remedy next time. This is so easy and delicious, and looks kind of fancy even though it’s such a simple recipe. I am now obsessed with cheesy asparagus and will make it ALL THE TIME.
Made this for Easter dinner. It was a hit with everyone! So good and so, so easy and quick.
Looks delish! I plan on adding this to our Easter dinner. Yummy!
I made this the other day, I had a leftover grilled boneless chicken breast I cut that thin and put that on the asparagus it made a great fast and amazing meal! This is a KEEPER!

I simply LOVE! basically all your recipes! Please keep them coming
I wish I had your talent of making your food look absolutely delicious!!! I follow your directions to the letter and my dishes do not ever look like yours. Oh well, maybe that’s why I ended up being a teacher and not a “foodie”. Thanks
You are so sweet! You do have talents and gifts too that I know I would be wanting. Teaching is an amazing career and so giving! You inspire me! Thanks for all you do! I love what I do and so happy that I can share it with the world!
