Roasted Asparagus

Roasted Asparagus
This is a really nice side dish that is great for family dinner.  We all love asparagus and having lots of it for family meals is really needed.  So I love this because we can make a lot at one time.  This was adapted from the Cooking Light recipe for Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter.  We made this for Easter a LONG time ago and I am only getting it posted now.  Oh well - it is a great side and one will make again when we are entertaining.

Ingredients (around 6-8 servings)
2  bunches Asparagus, cut to around 4" from the tip.
Cooking spray
1/2 tsp Kosher salt (adjust to taste)
1/4 tsp Black pepper
3 tbsp Butter
3 tsp Soy sauce (Lower-sodium if you have it)
1 tsp Balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.  Arrange asparagus in a single layer on baking sheet.  Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes or until tender.
3. In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.  Cook for 3 minutes, shaking pan occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Drizzle over asparagus, tossing well to coat. Serve immediately.
