I saw this recipe in this months cooking light, and knew it was a go. It was in their quick and easy category, i love asparagus, and I love tomatoes, what wasn't to like. It really was a quick cook, and quite easy. The original recipe has actual measurements associated with it, however, you know I don't believe in measuring unless absolutely necessary (how very un-engineer of me). it was quite yummy, although sauteing the asparagus would possibly have been a little more yummy (and less healthy). I really loved the balsamic tomatoes with goat cheese. I could see just doing the tomatoes and goat cheese with some pasta sometime. that would be fantabulous.
Extra-virgin olive oil
Halved grape tomatoes
Minced fresh garlic
Crumbled goat cheese
salt and pepper to taste
First, steam the asparagus for about 2-3 minutes until just barely tender and still firm.
Next, heat a little oil in a pan and saute the tomatoes and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste and cook for 2-3 minutes longer.
Serve the tomatoes over the asparagus and top with a little goat cheese.
