Excellent recipe. I cooked it for 3 minutes and used a teaspoon of oil, lots of pepper and the balsamic vinegar gives it just the right zip. No wonder it's your favorite.

Basically a good idea and easy,However, the asparagus needed a much longer cooking time. Also, one T oil was not enough; maybe it would have been in a non-stick pan but that's not what I used.

Yum- I love this and make it a lot! I also like to chill it afterwards and then put the balsamic and oil on top, and sprinkle with a little feta cheese and serve cold. Delicious!
