What You'll Need:

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes in oil

What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
     
  2. Wrap 4 asparagus spears with a slice of bacon, leaving both ends of the asparagus unwrapped (see Note); place on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining asparagus and bacon; sprinkle bundles with pepper.
     
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until bacon is crisp.
     
  4. Place on a large platter, sprinkle with sundried tomatoes, and serve immediately.

Note

  • If the asparagus spears are thick, you can use 3 per bundle. Adjust the number of spears in each bundle accordingly.
