Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus, with tomatoes, garlic, onions, and asiago cheese, makes a healthy gourmet side dish that can be on the table in 15 minutes and is perfect for brunch, or a weeknight or holiday dinner.
Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus is actually my recipe to share with our family. I would love to make one of my Mom’s favorite recipes, but my Mom was not interested in cooking. She was a wonderful Mother and creative artist, but cooking was not something she enjoyed. So I can’t remember that she had a favorite recipe.
However, I think my Mom would have loved this Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus recipe because it is delicious, healthy, impressive, and can be ready in 15 minutes, and goes well with dishes like Chicken Piccata and Chicken Parmesan. Quick and easy recipes were the only ones she would consider. A lot of that was out of necessity since she was a working Mom with 5 kids.
Even though my Mother did not enjoy cooking, she did enjoy anything artistic. She painted on canvas and porcelain, made ceramic art, and tile mosaic artwork.
The name Mosaic in my blog title, Flavor Mosaic, is a nod to my Mom because of her tile mosaic artwork that she created. While I can’t paint or make the tile mosaic artwork she did, I can create a recipe that is a mosaic of flavors!
I think this Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus qualifies as a mosaic of flavors and is so pretty some might consider it a work of art.
Once you taste the incredible flavor of the roasted asparagus, this will become one of your favorite recipes also. The roasting really brings out the sweetness of the asparagus.
How about you? Would you and your Mom like this Asiago Bruschetta Roasted Asparagus? Give it a try for your Mother’s Day brunch, or just a weeknight dinner.

This dish looks gorgeous.Honestly, roasting asparagus is the BEST way to prepare it. Seems to bring out all the sugars. Nice post!
I agree. Roasting the asparagus brings out so much flavor.
Roasting is my favorite way to cook asparagus, but I never thought to add these classic bruschetta toppings – it looks delicious.

This looks amazing! I think it would be a perfect match for prime rib 🙂 We love asparagus here. The time for this works out perfect to go along with any roast really. You can turn oven up and cook this while the roast is resting out of the oven. Can’t wait to try this!
This would go perfectly with prime rib. It is delicious and makes a beautiful presentation that is perfect for any special occasion.

Taking this to a Thanksgiving dinner! Can’t wait…any ideas for portability appreciated.
Hi Kelley, if possible, I recommend calling ahead to see if you could bake this in their oven about 15 minutes before serving. That would provide the best flavor and texture for this recipe.
