I'm always on the lookout for a good side vegetable. I love asparagus and decided to try this new recipe for cooking it. It's rated very highly on allrecipes.com. It was good, not very healthy, but a nice change.

4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat, and stir in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. Pour over the baked asparagus to serve.
