Only 4 ingredients make this Creamy Baked Asparagus a breeze! It’s quick and easy and perfect even for a holiday dinner.



  • 1 pound asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup coarsely crushed buttery crackers (such as Ritz – about 6 crackers)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Bring about half an inch of water to a boil in a skillet. Add the asparagus and cook for about 2-3 minutes – it should be bright green and still crisp. Drain the water.
  3. Toss the asparagus with the ranch dressing, and place in a 1 1/2 to 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with the cracker crumbs and then the cheese.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is slightly brown and the asparagus is heated through.
