    paperfreeme's Note:

    This is based on a recipe from Second Helpings from Union Square Cookbook. Much to the dismay of family and friends, I could never learn to appreciate asparagus. It always reminded me somehow of eating grass. But I tried this recipe and finally found a way to love asparagus. This is incredibly simple, but the combination is superb. Spending the extra to get true fleur de sel is really worth it for this dish.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
    2. 2
      Wash the asparagus and break the tough ends off (no need to peel them in my opinion).
    3. 3
      Place the asparagus in a roasting pan and drizzle on the oil and sprinkle with the pepper.
    4. 4
      Shake the pan to coat the asparagus evenly with oil.
    5. 5
      Place in the oven and roast until asparagus is softened but retains a little crunch, about 10 to 12 minutes.
    6. 6
      Watch it carefully!
    7. 7
      It's so sad to overcook it!
    8. 8
      Remove from oven, arrange on a serving platter and top with the balsamic vinegar, fleur de sel and freshly grated parmesan (no kraft please! Use the real stuff).
    9. 9
      Serve immediately.
