Default Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar Asparagus

Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar Asparagus

If fresh thin asparagus spears are not available, you can substitute with larger spears; but first blanch for one minute, give an ice bath, pat dry and then proceed to saute.

3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 large bunch fresh thin asparagus spears, tough ends removed
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese for garnish

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus, garlic, and vinegar and saute until asparagus is tender, about 3 to 6 minutes, depending on whether you like your asparagus crisp or on the softer side. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
