"I clipped this recipe from a magazine years ago (probably Cooking Light). I've a fan of roasted vegetables, asparagus and anything with balsamic vinegar, but somehow have not tried this as the recipe got lost in my recipe box. Now that it is hear, it will be on the menu the next time asparagus is in season."

I halved this recipe, and made it for 2 of us, but I must admit to eating most of it. This is so easy to prepare and the timings are perfect. We really did enjoy the asparagus made this way, the balsamic added a wonderful flavor and complimented the asparagus really well. Served with chicken and corn this made for a lovely side dish, but even served on its own would be delsih as well!
