    20 minutes

    If you've been boiling asparagus I urge you to change your ways. Asparagus is best oven roasted with crispy parmesan and good balsamic vinegar.

    Awesome dish, just had it for my lunch. I tried if first without the balsamic, then tried it with - both absolutely delicious. Needs a little salt. Now I just wish I had some more asparagus left... Highly recommended :-)  -  05 Nov 2010

    Took shortcuts. I didn't use any balsamic vinegar, but all the rest the same and it was a winner in my household. Thanks.  -  07 Oct 2010
