    I've been using this recipe for years to convert asparagus haters into asparagus lovers. It's now actually to the point where if I don't make it with certain meals (steak, salmon, etc) people are actually disappointed.Just a couple tips:1) To save yourself time on the clean up and to make the tips get a little more crisp in them fold aluminum foil into the shape of a small tray and when you're done all you need to do is ball it up and toss it in the trash.2) Just to add a little variety to the dish add a little grated peccorino romano and/or a little squeeze of lemon at the end too.

    Love this recipe. Easy to do and quick. I've roasted other vegetables using this method too. I'm a big fan of Balsamic vinegar so I use more. Very good!
