Source Shadows One of my originals.Very tasty.


  1. Break tough ends off asparagus.
  2. Place in Ziploc bag.
  3. Cook garlic and parsley in oil for 3 minutes.
  4. Pour garlic oil over asparagus.
  5. Toss to coat.
  6. Lay coated asparagus stalks in baking tray, making sure they don't overlap.
  7. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  8. Bake in 400º oven for 5-8 minutes, or until asparagus is tender.
  9. NOTES: For extra flavor and a classy presentation, wrap 4-5 stalks together with a slice of uncooked bacon, securing with a toothpick.
  10. Repeat with remaining stalks.
  11. Spoon any left over garlic oil over bunches.
  12. Bake additional 5 minutes.

A nice alternative to my normal garlic saut?ed asparagus! I made as written and was wishing we had some bacon so that I could have tried the suggestion in step 9. Thanks for the tasty post.

We loved this! Two of my favorite ingredients - parsley and garlic. Next time, I'll add more garlic and more parsley. Delicious!

This is the only way I cook asparagus. But I just put it on the foil with what you use and mix it up. But I bet cooking it frist would be better. going to try that. Thanks Shadows
