"This is a unique and tasty asparagus recipe! It cooked quickly on high broil, so watch closely. My family loved it!"

"Very easy, and a nice change up from the usual steamed. However, watch it as it cooks, mine cooked in far less than the posted amount of time. Possibly because it was very fresh. It was a big hit and there were no leftovers! I didn't measure but just sprinkled the oil and balsamic vinegar over and a little salt and pepper, put it in and stirred it once. Quicker than steaming it! Wonderful flavor!"
