      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.
