Balsamic-roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Balsamic Roasted Asparagus

A quick and easy alternative technique to cooking up asparagus. I love the Buttered Asparagus with Parmesan recipe, but this is also a great way to add a bit of sweet acidity to this fabulous vegetable. Try both the buttered asparagus and this balsamic-roasted asparagus recipe and let me know in the comments below which one you prefer…

  5. Spread the asparagus out on a baking sheet. Drizzle over the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Scatter over half the finely grated Parmesan.
