Balsamic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes

Balsamic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes – roasting enhances the natural sweetness of the asparagus and tomatoes, add some grated Parmesan and a balsamic reduction for an amazing side dish.


I’ve recently discovered my passion for asparagus. This is coming from someone who never used to buy asparagus to cook before, but I’d have it at restaurants here and there. So here is my favorite way to cook asparagus along with tomatoes. I love roasted tomatoes with parmesan and balsamic reduction, so adding some asparagus to this was a no brainer. Together they’re amazing and such a delicious and healthy side dish.

I’ve also just realized that Easter is just around the corner, where has the time gone? Wasn’t it just Christmas? I guess time does fly when you’re having fun and I have been having loads of fun. Fun cooking that is. Sometimes I get in the mood to cook all day. And sometimes I do cook all day. So when I made this side dish, I made a million other dishes along with it. But for now let’s just focus on this roasted asparagus and tomatoes because it’s so incredibly simple to make, and it’s just packed with flavor.
