A CookTale

We are an Asparagus family. Simply steamed, oven roasted, BBQ grilled, or with a savory cheese, Parmesan, Romano or Asiago melted atop in a hot oven, quite delicious. It’s a take- no-time, vegetarian side dish that complements most main dishes.


1 LB of Asparagus (look for thick stalks)
Kosher Salt & Black Pepper
1 TB of EVOO
1/3 Cup of a hard Italian Cheese (shredded)


1. Prepare the Asparagus stalks by peeling away the tough skin.

2. Heat the oven to 425 F degrees.

3. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the Asparagus & simmer for 5 to 6 minutes (depending on the their thickness). Drain, dry & add to an oven proof casserole dish in a single layer. Add the EVOO.

4. Shred on the Cheese & move the casserole to the oven. Bake until the Cheese has thoroughly melted & the Asparagus has begun to take on color.
