Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

It’s not quite Summer yet – it’s only been officially Spring for 10 days – but in Savannah, we’ve already been to the beach a couple times and it sure feels like Summer to me!  Fresh asparagus makes me think of the warmer months and this just went great with chicken we made on the grill the other night.  Easy and healthy and I guarantee that your entire family will love this recipe.  Kiddos and all!  
Serves 2-3
1 pound of asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Snap off the woody end of a piece of asparagus and use that as a guide to cut the ends of the rest of the bunch.  Lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Use your hands to make sure they are all covered.  
Roast for 12-15 minutes, until tender.  Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
