  • Arrange asparagus spears in a shallow baking dish.

  • Whisk together half-and-half, cornstarch, Italian seasoning, ground mustard, red pepper flakes, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Pour mixture over asparagus and swirl the dish so that the liquid coats the bottom of the dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until asparagus is soft and cheese sauce starts to bubble, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

I had to change out the cheeses. and half/half. Now, if I can make this using fat free milk and fat free cottage cheese and it was excellent, I can only imagine how fantastic it would be using half/half, mozzarella and parmesan. One thing I would do next time is cut from the top down 4" and the rest of the stem into 1" pieces. The tops were crisp and perfect to eat but not the rest of the stem until I redid them. Read More
