Well if your kids don’t like their veggies with this recipe then they are not normal:) This ooey, gooey, cheesy asparagus is so delicious and easy enough to whip up on a crazy busy night, but still gorgeous enough to serve at a dinner party. All your guests will love it, even the ones that say “I don’t like vegetables”. And I promise your kids will love it! This is recipe is also Keto friendly so if you are on that diet then this is PERFECT for you.
In the winter it can be hard to find those beautiful thick asparagus stalks so be sure and watch your cook time if you all you can find is the skinny stalks. There is nothing worse than mushy vegetables so for the skinny stalks cut the cook time down a couple minutes. If you are lucky enough to find the thick ones then be sure to use your vegetable peeler and peel off the bottom 1/2 of the stalks (after you have cut off the tough woody ends).
Enjoy this pumped up, elegant side dish!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Lay stalks on the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle garlic, salt and pepper. Using your hands toss the spears so they are covered in the oil mixture. Lay them in a single layer.
