I found this recipe in one of my cooking light magazines and decided to give it a try. I have never cooked asparagus before this and was unsure how it was going to turn out, but I thought it tasted really good. The balsamic browned butter gives it a really good taste and the asparagus comes out perfect when baked in the oven.

A winner! I've never made brown butter before or at least on purpose and it's delicious! Ran out of soy sauce so I substituted Braggs Liquid Aminos which is very similar but more healthy. Will make this again.

My family absolutely LOVES asparagus prepared just about any way, but I believe this one is the best I have every made......and VERY easy! EVERYONE loved it! I should have made a double recipe. It would be nice enough to serve to guests as well.
