Asparagus and Mascarpone

with Parmasan Breadcrumbs


  • 500g asparagus, trimmed and cut into pieces
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 50g Emborg Gran Amici, grated 
  • 150g Emborg Mascarpone
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg                                                                


Turn oven to 200 degrees celcius. In a gratin dish, toss the asparagus with the onion, 1 tbs. olive oil, salt and ground pepper. Heat vegetables until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss the breadcrumbs with the Emborg Gran Amici grated parmasan, remaining 1 tbs. olive oil, and ground pepper. Dollop the mascarpone in little spoonfuls over the asparagus, sprinkle with the nutmeg, and top with the breadcrumb mixture.

Bake until bubbly and golden-brown, about 5 minutes more. Serve immediately as side dish.
