Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter Sauce
Asparagus has been my favorite vegetable since I was in grade school. My grandparents used to lease out a section of their ranch property to an asparagus farmer, and we often got to can or freeze some of the harvest. Asparagus fields are also fantastic for playing hide-and-seek in, but that's another topic for another day... :)
Even though this recipe has more words in its title than ingredients in its list, hands down - it's our most favorite way to eat asparagus. Bo requests it all the time, and I willingly oblige. It's just too easy and too delicious not to whip up while your main dish is cooking. And the smell of browning butter is something to behold. If I could bottle that scent up, I'd be a go-zillionaire.
