Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

I haven’t finalized our Easter dinner menu yet, I want to make too many things:) I do know that asparagus will be one of our side dishes. Asparagus is in season and I can’t get enough. We made our lemon asparagus the other night for dinner and it was divine.  I think we will make roasted asparagus with balsamic vinegar on Sunday to switch things up a bit.

I love how simple this recipe is. All you have to do is drizzle the asparagus spears with balsamic vinegar and a little bit of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

I love asparagus in many forms, but roasting it with a little balsamic vinegar really brings out the best flavor. This healthy  side dish is the perfect accompaniment to any spring meal. Add it to your menu today.
