This is my new favorite way to roast asparagus. I was never a fan of grilling asparagus on a grill, as it often gets all burned and you have to watch it really carefully to make sure the asparagus doesn’t get burned.  Try this recipe instead, as an alternative to grilling, and you’ll never grill asparagus again.  Your asparagus will be nice and crunchy and crispy and not overcooked. First, coat the asparagus with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper, and minced garlic, and roast the asparagus for 10 minutes in the oven at 425 F:

What you have in the end is perfectly crisp and crunchy asparagus, with melted cheese and bacon. So good!

    Could I use Parmesan or mozzarella instead of Asiago?
