Updated Mar 1, 2017

Ingredients

  • 4 quarts water
  • 2 lb fresh asparagus spears, trimmed (about 35 spears per lb)
  • 2 packages (5.2 oz each) Boursin® cheese with garlic and herbs, softened
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 2 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F.
  • 2
    To blanch asparagus, heat 4 quarts water (add 1 tablespoon salt, if desired) in 6-quart Dutch oven to boiling. Add asparagus; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Remove asparagus, and immediately immerse in bowl of ice cold water. Let stand 5 minutes. Drain well; pat dry with paper towels.
  • 3
    Place asparagus spears in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, mix Boursin™ cheese and whipping cream with whisk or fork until blended. Stir in Parmesan cheese; spread over asparagus. Top with tomatoes.
  • 5
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with thyme.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Purchase asparagus spears with firm, tightly closed and unwilted tips. Before cooking, remove woody ends of stalks by snapping them off or cutting them off with a knife. Cook asparagus as soon as possible after purchasing.
  • tip 2
    For easier prep, asparagus can be blanched ahead of time. Store covered in refrigerator. Warm asparagus slightly before assembling dish.
