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!

Delicious flavor and so simple! Before serving I sliced up a fresh tomatoe and added. Next time I will invest in GOOD balsamic. I will make again.

I've been doing something similar for a couple of years now. I toss the asparagus with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, black pepper and sea salt, then put it on the grill til it starts to caramelize a little, then drop it back into the dressing for another quick toss before plating. When I'm feeling fancy, I shave some parmigiana reggiano curls on top, on the plate.

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Made as written and was very pleased with the outcome, wonderful flavor and great texture, just the way I like asparagus cooked. I served this with Broiled Salmon With Honey & Vermouth Thanks for posting! Made for "Down on the Farm" Photo Tag May 2012!

I am so glad that I tried this. I really really liked the flavor the balsamic gave the asparagus. I did add a tiny bit of kosher salt once they were on the plate. Absolutely delicious. I served this with recipe 416056 for Garlic Parm. pork chops and a green salad. So tasty. Thanks for the great idea. Not sure I will cook asparagus any other way.
