Balsamic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes

Balsamic Parmesan Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes
Up next is another asparagus dish and this time it's roasted asparagus and tomatoes covered in melted parmesan cheese and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. Roasting the asparagus really brings out its flavour and the roasted tomatoes that are slightly caramelized on the outside and yet still bursting with juiciness on the inside go amazingly well together! The sweet and tart balsamic reduction brings everything home and complements the parmesan cheese perfectly! This parmesan roasted asparagus and tomatoes is so easy to make and it's a fantastic side dish for any summer meal! Not that you will have any leftovers but if you were to make extra, the leftovers, when sliced up into bite sized pieces, make a great salad for lunch the next day served, cool, room temperature or reheated.
