Asparagus Alfredo Pasta Bake – Makings of a Cream Sauce

There’s nothing better than a homemade creamed Alfredo sauce and it’s not hard to make from scratch. When you’re craving a comfort meal, I suspect Asparagus Alfredo Pasta Bake would hit the spot. With a melty creamy sauce smothering your favourite pasta noodles, you are sure to satisfy everyone’s hungry bellies at the dinner table.

Personally, I don’t think there is ever such a thing as too much freshly grated parmesan; I love shaved parmesan on salads, roasted veggies and of course pasta. Sprinkle of cracked pepper for the perfect combination. Add parmesan to this Asparagus Alfredo Pasta Bake, and then a touch more for a to-die-for burst of flavour in your mouth.

Alfredo and Asparagus Pasta Bake

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 31 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 51 minutes


  • About 1 pound of your favorite large pasta, I used a pantacce pasta shape
1 pound of thin asparagus, trimmed to remove all of the lower woody stalk
  • 1 teaspoons of olive or avocado oil
  • 1 stick (½ cup) of salted butter
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 ¾ cup parmesan cheese, fresh grated
  • 1-2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste


This dish can be served as soon as it is mixed together or you can put it in an oven safe serving dish and bake for about 25 minutes at 375 degrees. 

Cook the pasta to package instructions. 

In a large non stick pan, heat the oil and saute the asparagus until fork tender then set to the side to cool for a few minutes so you can handle it. 

Heat a small pot over medium heat. Melt the butter and add the garlic, saute the garlic in the butter for about 5 minutes or just until it starts to have a golden hue to it. Then slowly add in the cream. Continue to simmer everything together for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Whisk in the cheese, stirring constantly, until you have a perfectly smooth sauce. Add the salt and pepper to preference. 

Pour over the pasta and stir well to coat every piece.

Add the cooked asparagus to the top of the bowl. 

You may now serve everything as it is or cover with a lid or foil and bake.

This is delicious both ways, and leftovers should keep nicely for up to 5 days.
