Roasted Asparagus with Mayo Cheese Sauce

Posted by Brette in Food

AspargusDish I was turned off at the idea of putting mayo on asparagus, but honestly, this quick little recipe is your savior when you need to dress up asparagus with almost no work. I found this little gem in Family Table by Michael Romano, a book that offers recipes for the dishes top restaurants make to feed their own staffs before service begins. So far I am loving this book.

Roasted Asparagus with Mayo Cheese Sauce
 
Ingredients
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup light mayo
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Spray a 9x9 baking pan with cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Place the trimmed asparagus in the pan, all facing the same way. Sprinkle about 2-3 tablespoons olive oil and 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice over it and season with salt and pepper. Toss. Bake for 15 minutes or tender.
  2. Remove from the oven and spread the mayo on top then sprinkle the cheese. Broil until it begins to brown.
