I made this as a side dish to go with dinner tonight and it turned out fantastic. I love both asparagus and tomatoes, and the bit of balsamic brought it some sweetness which my family enjoys. It also takes about 15 minutes to make and is great year round.
In a medium sized pot filled with water, place the salt and bring to a boil. While the water is preparing – slice the tomatoes and place the olive oil in a skillet. Once the skillet is hot add the tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the balsamic and cook another 2-3 minutes. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. We want the asparagus to be firm but cooked. Drain the water and place the asparagus on a plate or in a bowl. Top with the tomatoes and serve immediately add a bit of balsamic glaze if you like. Serves 4-6.
