Directions:
1. Adjust an oven rack to the uppermost position and heat the broiler. Toss the asparagus with the 1 Tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper to taste, then arrange the stalks in a single layer on a heavy rimmed baking sheet. Broil, shaking the pan halfway through to turn the spears, until the asparagus is tender and lightly browned, 8 - 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, bring the vinegar to a boil in an 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer slowly until the vinegar is syrupy and reduced to 1/4 c, 15 - 20 minutes.
3. Arrange the asparagus on a platter. Drizzle the balsamic glaze and olive oil over the asparagus.
Scatter the cheese shavings on top and serve immediately.
