Try these asiago cheese recipes for meals everyone will love!
Asiago cheese is like Parmesan’s more even-tempered cousin. These cheeses may look similar, but asiago is creamier and sweeter than Parmesan.
Asiago goes great on a pizza or omelets, but there are many ways to jazz up dinner time with these exciting asiago cheese recipes.
Whether used in a party dip, a chicken bake, or soup, these asiago cheese recipes keep dinner full of nutty flavor.
1. Baked Asiago Cheese Dip
Asiago cheese is incredibly creamy, making it a perfect option for a dip!
This baked asiago cheese dip is perfect for a potluck when you want something easy and impressive.
This recipe is super simple and includes asiago cheese, mozzarella, bacon, garlic, and cream cheese.
To ensure that the cheese is perfectly melted and delicious, serve it immediately after it comes out of the oven.
It pairs well with rich crusty bread or butter crackers.
2. Air Fryer Quesadillas
Quesadillas are simple, but selecting the right cheese makes all the difference.
Asiago is smooth and crumbly with a strong salty flavor, so it’s perfect for quesadillas.
Pairing asiago cheese with pinto beans, chicken, bell pepper, and onion transforms a classic into something more elevated.
The best part about cooking them in an air fryer is that you won’t need any oil.
However, if you want a super crunchy crust, I recommend lightly spraying your shells with cooking oil.
3. Creamy Baked Asiago Chicken
This baked chicken is the perfect option if you’re short on time, but it tastes like you were cooking all day.
The simple cream sauce utilizes a blend of grated asiago cheese and mayonnaise.
If you want to keep it lower in calories, swap out your full-fat mayo for light mayo or even Greek yogurt.
Mix your ingredients into a baking sheet, cook it for 45 minutes, and top it with extra asiago and fresh herbs.
4. Asiago Chicken with Bacon Cream Sauce
This recipe is creamy, salty, and incredibly satisfying.
The added asiago cheese ensures that your chicken stays tender and moist with an added boost of nuttiness.
Asiago is great, but the bacon cream sauce adds another punch of flavor to this dish.
The heavy ingredients in this recipe won’t feel as rich with just a touch of lemon juice.
Serve it over a bed of rice or with roasted greens.
5. Asiago Broccoli Cheese Soup
There’s nothing more perfect on a cold day than broccoli and cheese soup.
This soup blends sharp cheddar with a hearty portion of asiago for a cheesy, salty, and delicious dish.
When making this recipe, opt for a block of asiago instead of shredded. When shredded, this cheese loses a lot of flavors.
If you use pre-shredded cheese, the sharp cheddar overpowers your soup.
For an added punch of asiago, dress your bowl with extra cheese and top it with croutons.
6. Julia Child’s French Onion Soup
Julia Child’s French onion soup premiered in the 1960s, and there’s a reason it’s still a classic!
It’s sinfully decadent with rich beef broth and sweet onions, baked to perfection.
While many recipes call for Parmesan to top your French bread, asiago is a great substitute!
It adds a bit more creaminess to this hearty soup with a touch of nuttiness.
To take your soup to the next level, skip the pre-packaged beef broth and make your own at home (it makes a big difference).
7. Asiago Chicken Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach
This satisfying pasta dish is worth checking out if you can’t get enough asiago cheese.
It blends beautifully into the chicken, spinach, and sun-dried tomato dish.
This recipe is great for hot summer days when you want something light yet satisfying.
It comes together in just 40 minutes and adds extra nutrition from spinach and tomatoes.
8. Cheddar and Asiago Mac and Cheese
It wouldn’t be a party if mac and cheese didn’t make an appearance.
Adding asiago cheese into macaroni and cheese elevates it to something savory and delicious.
This simple mac and cheese recipe has a few secret ingredients to make those delightful little noodles sing.
The first, of course, is asiago cheese. Adding 2 cups of asiago cheese makes your noodles creamy with a bit of nuttiness.
The second secret ingredient is cayenne pepper. A pinch of cayenne pepper adds a meaty smoked flavor, sans the meat.
9. Italian Four Cheese Risotto
I know what you are thinking. Risotto is notoriously tricky, but that isn’t true!
Sure, risotto requires patience, but it’s worth the extra effort. This decadent risotto comes together in just 40 minutes and tastes fantastic.
This dish calls for asiago, swiss, fontina, and gorgonzola cheese.
If gorgonzola isn’t your jam (I completely understand), simply swap it out for more Swiss or fontina.
The key to perfect risotto is adding your liquid slowly and always stirring!

To save on time, use a bag of pre-made tortellini and cook according to the packaging.
You can also opt for shredded asiago cheese in this recipe to make things easier on yourself.
This recipe is deceptively filling. However, chicken or Italian sausage works well if you want some added protein.

It’s simple and incredibly decadent.

Stir in the cheese and spinach until it’s melty and delicious.

Make soups rejoice with this amazing asiago cheese bread.
You can opt to make the dough from scratch or simply use a fool-proof boxed bread mix.
Stir in your asiago cheese at the beginning of your kneading process to infuse your dough with asiago flavor.

The artichoke pesto and canned crab meat make this dip surprisingly filling.
Serve it on a decorative platter with plenty of crackers.
18. Kale Dip with Cream Cheese and Parmesan
Dips are great, but they aren’t exactly considered a health food.
This creamy kale and asiago cheese dip scratches that itch without the extra calories. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak in some nutrition.
While the base of this dip uses mayonnaise and cream cheese, you can use healthier options to keep calories low.
Swap out the cream cheese for Neufchatel and the full-fat mayo for light mayo.
The kale in this dip offers a delightful crunch, while the cheese and cream provide a little extra nuttiness.
19. Crockpot Tomato Soup
Kick that canned tomato soup to the curb. This Crockpot soup is super simple, and you likely have all of the ingredients on hand.

20. Peach and Prosciutto Pizza
Have you grown tired of the classic mozzarella and pepperoni on your pizza?
This unique take is sure to stimulate your tastebuds! The flavors in this pizza are soft and delicate, making it a perfect dinner this summer.
The sweetness from the peaches pairs so well with the saltiness from prosciutto and nuttiness from the asiago.
Be sure always to use fresh peaches when making this recipe. Frozen peaches contain too much water, which makes your pizza soggy.
