Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs (750 g) asparagus spears, trimmed
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, softened
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
pinch of salt
1 cup (250 mL) coarse fresh bread crumbs
1 cup (250 mL) Canadian Swiss or 
old Cheddar or 
Gouda cheese, shredded
2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C). Spread asparagus evenly in a 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) glass baking dish.

In a small bowl, mash together butter, garlic, lemon zest, pepper and salt. Drop in small dots over asparagus spears in a baking dish. Roast for about 15 min, shaking dish halfway to coat asparagus in butter, or until asparagus is just tender-crisp and starting to brown.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine bread crumbs, cheese and lemon juice; sprinkle over asparagus and bake for about 3 min or until cheese is melted. Broil for 1 to 2 min or until golden brown.

Tips

In place of asparagus, substitute 6 cups (1.5 L) broccoli and/or cauliflower florets or 1 lb (450 g) trimmed green beans. Increase roasting time in step 2 to 25 min.
