Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus spears, woody ends removed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or 4 cloves garlic, minced)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil spray. 
  2. Arrange asparagus on baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl mix together olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Drizzle the oil mixture over the asparagus and toss to evenly coat.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until vibrant and just beginning to get tender.
