1 pound asparagus spears, woody ends removed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic (or 4 cloves garlic, minced)
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil spray.
Arrange asparagus on a baking sheet. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix together olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Drizzle the oil mixture over the asparagus and toss to evenly coat.
Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes until vibrant and just beginning to get tender. Then broil until the cheese becomes golden (about 4-5 minutes).
Adjust salt and pepper, if needed. Serve immediately.
