A bright and flavorful vegetable dish that even vegetable haters will enjoy. It goes great with roasted meats. For milder flavors, substitute mozzarella cheese and use less vinegar.

Directions

  1. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add the asparagus and red onion in the mixture, season with salt, and cook until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir the red bell pepper into the mixture and continue cooking until the onions begin to caramelize, another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vinegar, Parmesan cheese, sesame seeds, and pine nuts; toss to combine.

A great concept that I think got carried away with too many ingredients. Loved the combo of asparagus, red pepper & red onion but the parmesan wasn't really needed and overpowered & almost completely hid the balsamic vinegar.

I love finding new veggie combinations and this was a yummy new take on asparagus. I'll definitely be making again, exactly as written.
