Cheesy Baked Asparagus

No. 1 way to eat asparagus.

During the spring and summer, there's so much asparagus, we don't even know how to handle it. We love it simply roasted, but there's so much more to do with the vegetable: You can make asparagus bacon pasta, bacon asparagus roll-ups, or asparagus soup. But our favorite way to prepare it as a fancy side: Top it with garlic, a little cream, Parmesan, and mozzarella and bake it until the cheese is bubbly and golden and the asparagus is tender. This will be gone in seconds.
