Balsamic Roasted Asparagus

My brother Kevin, works for Gourmet Trading, which is one of the largest importers of asparagus in the United States.

Needless to say, we eat a lot of asparagus.  This one of my favorites!

First you need to trim your asparagus.  Take a piece of the asparagus and hold it on either end and then bend it until it breaks naturally.

Use that piece as a guide to trim the rest of the asparagus.  I like to leave the top rubber band to help keep control of them all.


Line a baking sheet with foil, lay out the asparagus in a single layer,

 and drizzle with a couple of tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper.

Toss well. Cook at 425 degree for 20-25 minutes.  The tops of the asparagus will start to turn brown and they will look a little shriveled.


Serve them up!
