Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Brown Butter


Author Notes: My mom found this recipe in a magazine several years ago and has used it to convert many former asparagus haters (including herself!). I love it for its simplicity- you can throw it together in 15 minutes flat- and sheer addictiveness- you'll be putting the sauce on everything.lazychef
