I could have made a meal out of this Asparagus, mushrooms and bacon tonight! It reminds me of my roasted Brussels sprouts.
I usually drizzle my asparagus with olive oil then wrap in foil before placing it on the grill. Tonight we were not grilling out so I roasted it in the oven with mushrooms, bacon and lemon slices. The lemon slices gave the asparagus a little zing flavor. But who does not like anything that is cooked with bacon.... I sure do!
