Roasted Asparagus with Bacon and Parmesan

Roasted Asparagus with Bacon. Roasted asparagus. Bacon. In the world of vegetables, this recipe is pretty spectacular.

Spring is the season for asparagus. While you can get asparagus year round, the best, and freshest asparagus from local sources comes in the spring.

This asparagus was super fresh, and shipped, freshly harvested, from Michigan. I actually received about four pounds of asparagus, and have been having fun using it in different ways, such as in this shaved asparagus pizza, and this asparagus and goat cheese tart. I also remade this delicious asparagus, pea, and leek stir-fry, and a yet-to-be posted amazing asparagus and potato soup.

This roasted asparagus with bacon is so easy to make. Just spread the asparagus out on a sheet pan, add a little olive oil and some chopped bacon, and roast in a 450 degree F oven until the asparagus is done and the bacon is crispy. Top it with a garnish of Parmesan cheese and serve. So good.
