Roasting veggies always needs revamping every now and then, and I like to experiment by pairing them with different dressings or cheeses. I happened to love goat cheese and had extra on hand. I paired it with asparagus, and they lived happily ever after.

  • Arrange asparagus, side-by-side, on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over asparagus; season with salt and pepper. Crumble goat cheese over asparagus.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until cheese is slightly melted and asparagus are tender yet firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

This recipe is quite versatile by changing up the type of cheese: Gorgonzola, blue cheese, and shaved Parmesan are all good substitutes.

I love asparagus and thought the addition of goat cheese would be the perfect complement to the asparagus. The asparagus perfectly cooked crisp tender and had a lot of flavor. I used plain goat cheese because that is what I had in the fridge but I think the herb variety would be even better. I will make again but I think next time I will add the goat cheese just the last few minutes instead of cooking the entire time. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was good a nice change from always just steaming my fresh asparagus. Like had been suggested I added the cheese when there were only a few minutes of cooking time left. I wish I'd used less salt as the goat cheese was super salty! It's a nice simple recipe that tastes great glad I found it. Read More
