We love asparagus in this house. The recipe has the perfect balance of the sweetness and zip of the balsamic and the lovely funk of the parmesan.
Parmesan and Balsamic Glazed Roasted Asparagus
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
Pinch of red pepper flakes
2 lbs asparagus
salt and pepper
1/4 cup fresh shredded parmesan
Place the balsamic and red pepper flakes in a small sauce pan and reduce on medium high heat until thick
Meanwhile, coat asparagus in olive oil, salt and pepper.
Roast at 400 for 10-15 minutes until crisp but tender and starting to brown.
Sprinkle with parmesan and drizzle with balsamic reduction
