Sure! Here’s a recipe for Cheesy Asparagus Casserole:
- 1 lb (450g) asparagus spears, trimmed
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
- Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add the asparagus spears and cook for 2-3 minutes until they are bright green and slightly tender. Drain the asparagus and set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk together to form a roux. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the roux is lightly golden.
- Gradually pour in the milk, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture thickens and comes to a simmer.
- Reduce the heat to low and add the shredded cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheeses have melted and the sauce is smooth.
- Stir in the salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed.
- Place the cooked asparagus spears in the prepared baking dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the asparagus, making sure to coat them evenly.
- Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top of the casserole.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the casserole is bubbly and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
