Balsamic Roasted Asparagus

I got this recipe from "I Can't Believe It's Not Fattening" by Devin Alexander, a chef on "The Biggest Loser". It was so delicious and my new fave way to prepare asparagus.

1 lb asparagus, trimmed (about 10-12 oz. after trimming)
1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar, divided
sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, toss the spears in the oil and 1 tsp of the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Let the seasoned asparagus sit for 10 minutes.
Lay the spears in a single layer on a medium, nonstick baking sheet. Bake them for 4 minutes, flip them, and continue baking until the spears are crisp-tender, 3-6 minutes depending on the thickness. Drizzle the remaining vinegar over the spears and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
