This recipe was fabulous. I only changed two things: Roast the asparagus at 500 degrees x 4 minutes. It is perfectly cooked! Instead of balsamic vinegar, I used a balsamic glaze, which added a sweetness to complement the salt. This recipe is easy & a keeper!

I had some spring asparagus and burrata in the fridge and was looking for a recipe to combine the two. This was simple and delicious, pine nuts were a perfect addition for a little crunch and extra flavor. I served the dish as a side to grilled lamb chops with a mint salsa verde. Yum!
