Lemon Balsamic Roasted Asparagus

Was anyone else SO HAPPY to see two large bundles of asparagus in their basket this morning?  Seeing that made this girl happy!

Here is a perfect recipe to use up some of that delicious asparagus and lemons we got.  

I found this recipe a couple of days ago and was really excited to try it tonight.  I LOVE Balsamic Vinegar and fresh squeezed lemon juice so there was no doubt in my mind about loving it!

Lemon Balsamic Roasted Asparagus

*I didn't measure anything.  I just used about half of one of the bundles we got and just dumped the other ingredients until it looked good to me.*
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
fresh squeezed lemon juice

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Wash your asparagus and cut 1-1 1/2" off the bottom of the asparagus.  Put the asparagus, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a Ziploc bag.  Shake the bag until the asparagus is evenly coated.  Put on a cookie sheet and cook in the oven for 7-10 minutes, turning the asparagus half way through the time.  ENJOY!

I usually just roast with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and finish with fresh squeezed lemon. Next time i'll try the addition of balsamic vinegar. Thanks for all the great recipes!! : )
