Anything with Parmesan cheese on it is basically delicious. Change my mind. This oven roasted asparagus with Parmesan AND white wine with some butter and garlic is just the absolute best thing. I seriously never even expected this recipe to taste quite this good. It was a one try and done, it's perfect, type of recipe testing. I couldn't change a thing about it because I couldn't stop eating it. Hands down, best roasted asparagus recipe I've ever tried.
Baked Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese
This oven baked asparagus is loaded with shredded Parmesan cheese. This is important for this recipe, use the shredded Parmesan, not the powdered kind. It turns out so gooey, and melty, and just amazing. I'll probably tell you this recipe is amazing 45 more times so bare with me. Using the powdered parmesan will honestly still taste good but the texture will be more grainy paste than buttery melted goodness.
Baking asparagus and getting that perfect roasted veggie is one of the best ways to cook asparagus in my opinion. It's easy, simple, and gets the best results. The worst thing- over cooked asparagus. It gets soggy and gross and no one wants that. This recipe gets that cooked and tender, but still a little crunchy, perfect asparagus.
To make this recipe, start by pre-heating your oven to 375. Place a few dabs/slices of butter on the bottom of the dish and the asparagus right over the top. Make sure to cut the "butts" off the asparagus first because they tend to be way to annoying to chew because of their stringy texture.
Sprinkle your minced garlic over the top of the asparagus as evenly as you can. Then the Parmesan on top of that. Finally, the best part, sprinkle the wine over it all and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. So good, I'm craving it now!
What's the best wine to use in cooking?
I am super far from a wine connoisseur over here, but when it comes to cooking, your favorite white wine will do the trick. However, for your oven roasted asparagus with Parmesan I do have a particular type of wine that I LOVE to use. A honey mead wine (so technically not a white wine), is so so yummy to use with the asparagus and Parmesan pairing so perfectly. If you have that one or can find it, use it. Otherwise use a slightly sweeter white wine that you personally like and enjoy!
