Ingredients

    2 tablespoons of pine nuts
    1 1/2 pounds of asparagus
    1 large shallot , thinly sliced
    2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon of salt , divided
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F. Spread pine nuts in a small baking pan and gently toast in the oven until golden and fragrant, 3 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl to cool.

Increase oven temperature to 450° F. Cut off tough ends of asparagus. Toss asparagus with shallot, oil, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a large baking sheet with sides. Roast, turning twice, until the asparagus is tender and browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

While roasting asparagus, bring vinegar and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt to a simmer in a small skillet/pan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, swirling the pan occasionally, until slightly syrupy and reduced to 1 tablespoon, about 5 minutes. To serve, toss the asparagus with the reduced vinegar and sprinkle with the pine nuts.
