This is an excellent way of serving asparagus, which is one of my favorite vegetables. I made it as directed (with balsamic vinegar), except that I added the bocconcini to the asparagus while it was in the pan to make sure it melted and then carefully moved it to a serving dish. So good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray the asparagus lightly with an olive oil spray and stick the in the oven at 400°F/190°C with a few thinly sliced garlic cloves for about 5 minutes.
  2. To assemble: place asparagus on a plate, scatter bocconcini and olives on top and sprinkle combined oil and vinegar dressing over.
  3. If you like you may add a few leaves of roughly chopped fresh basil leaves as an added garnish.
  4. Serve either at room temp or refrigerate till serving time.
