We love this and will use this method from now on. As Tish said, the bacon comes out nicely browned, the tips of the asparagus are slightly crispy, and the rest is tender without being mushy. Thank you for sharing this!!!

Great recipe - I had rather large asparagus so I only used 2 per bundle. I had extra time, so I also peeled the bottoms with a vegtable peeler and it worked out great. Most important thing though, when it was done baking I drizzled Balsamic Vinegar over the bundles and it was fantastic!

Can't believe I've never had roasted asparagus before, just steamed or boiled. This will be my main asparagus cooking method from now on. Impressive and delicious.

I enjoyed this for an elegant way to serve asparagus. I used thick cut asparagus and stretched it around 5-6 to a bundle. The bacon was done perfectly, browned to perfection and the tips of the asparagus was a bit crispy - just as we like it. If you like your asparagus less done watch the oven. Thanks for an easy recipe that looks great

I make this all the time and absolutely love it. My BF, who doesn't like asparagus, likes this too. I do 2 things different though, first I wrap each individual piece of asparagus in half a piece of bacon. I find I prefer the bacon a bit thinner and if you cut it in half it stretches to the perfect thickness. The other thing I do is grill the asparagus, the bacon comes out nice and crispy and the asparagus come out with just the perfect amount of crunch.

This was good, I prefer I have discovered just plain roasted asparagus but this was good for a change.
