If you received my newsletter on Friday then you know I’m totally loving asparagus right now. It’s hard not to pick some up every time I walk past a display of it at the grocery store lately. Like most vegetables, I typically like to simply roast it, but I couldn’t help but add some of my favorite flavors to elevate it a bit – balsamic, gorgonzola and walnuts were meant to be together and you really can never go wrong with that combo.

I don’t know about you, but now that spring is in full swing, I’m craving grilled foods, bright vegetables and light grain salads. I spent Friday reviving my container herb garden on my patio (I’ll share pics soon) and just that got me in the mood – I just love this time of year and can’t wait to start taking advantage of our not so hot weather (yet) and grilling out as much as possible. Quick side dishes like this Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic, Gorgonzola and Walnuts would be perfect on a plate with grilled steak or chicken wouldn’t it?

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic, Gorgonzola and Walnuts

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon good balsamic vinegar
  • 1 oz (about 2 tablespoons) crumbled gorgonzola  cheese
  • 1/8 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place asparagus on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over asparagus, then using your hands give them a quick toss to spread the oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
  2. Cook for about 12 minutes or until slightly browned.
  3. Take out baking sheet and drizzle balsamic vinegar over asparagus. Top with gorgonzola and walnuts then place back into oven. Set oven to broiler and broil for 2-4 minutes (watch carefully!) until cheese starts to bubble. Serve immediately.

  1. I’m eating asparagus almost daily…I can’t get enough! This is just another way to fuel my obsession — I love this dish!

    • Yes! I love it. What’s been your favorite way to eat it lately? I think I’m going to make a frittata with it later today or tomorrow.

  2. Walnuts and gorgonzola–what a perfect combo with asparagus! Love all the asparagus recipes this month!

    • Asparagus is pretty popular right now that’s for sure! I love it! Walnuts and gorgonzola make everything better doesn’t it 🙂

  3. I can just imagine how amazing this must smell coming out of the broiler.  I wait eagerly for spring every single year just for the asparagus.  Oh.  And the lack of snow.  This seems just perfect to usher in the spring! 

    • It does smell pretty amazing, thank you Lydia!! I hope you get some asparagus soon – and be gone snow! 🙂

  4. Oh man, hearing about your container garden is making me jealous! We still have snow covering our upper field! Soon enough spring will be here too. In the meantime I am pinning this one for local asparagus!

  5. Steak was EXACTLY what I was thinking when I saw this, Aggie. Another one to put on my list. My husband and daughter are the biggest fans of anything with blue cheese, especially gorgonzola. Such a great combo of flavors and textures!

  6. I usually just love my asparagus simply roasted too, but this is taking it to the next level and i’m loving it!!

  7. This is going to be made in our house this week! This sounds SO good !
