Ingredients

  • ~1.1 lbs (500g) asparagus
  • ~2 tbsp (25g) butter , cut into cubes
  • ~2.6 oz (75g) Gorgonzola Dolce , cut into cubes
  • Salt and pepper to season

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350F/gas mark 4 and bring a pot of water to the boil.
  • Bend each asparagus stalk near the bottom and let it snap naturally, alternatively cut off the woody end of each asparagus. Boil the asparagus for 1-2 minutes then plunge into cold water to stop them cooking. You want the asparagus to retain their bright green colour.
  • Dry the asparagus then add to an oven proof dish. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper then dot with cubes of butter and Gorgonzola.
  • Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted and asparagus is cooked through. Serve with grilled chicken and potatoes or steak.

Notes

Add breadcrumbs or walnuts for extra texture. Try using taleggio cheese if Gorgonzola is too strong for you.
