Wow, Loren!! This was just as easy as could be. My family and I love balsamic vinegar and think it is delish on vegetables. I followed your directions which turned out tasty, tender asparagus. Already have plans to make it again this weekend. Thanks.

Enjoyed this simple dish so very much!! Next time will raise temp and perhaps leave in oven a tad longer (may just be personal preference). If price of asparagus will ever go down will have this more often! Thanks for sharing.
