Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Spears with Tomatoes and Taleggio Cheese

Recipe by  

"Mike came up with this recipe during the first dinner we cooked together in our brand-new apartment! We were inspired by a similar dish we've had at an Italian restaurant, but used it as a side dish instead of an antipasti plate, and substituted the prosciutto with bacon. The cheese, a relatively mild cow's milk cheese, should be relatively easy to find because of its increasing popularity. Super easy to make, and super tasty!"

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir asparagus and grape tomatoes into the garlic and drizzle with lemon juice. Continue to cook and stir until asparagus are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Wrap 3 asparagus spears with 1 slice of bacon. Repeat with remaining asparagus and bacon, making 4 bundles. Arrange wrapped asparagus on a baking sheet.
  5. Scatter cooked grape tomatoes around the wrapped asparagus.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, then scatter Taleggio cheese atop asparagus; return baking sheet to the oven.
  7. Continue baking until bacon is crisp, 5 to 7 minutes more.

Robust, diverse flavor with a nice tangy finish. I've made it twice already in two days and will make it again soon! Havarti cheese works as well with some basil sprinkled on top.

I prepared ahead of time to take to deer camp. Cooked them in foil. Probably should have opened the foil to allow the bacon to crisp up a bit, but had limited space. Had great flavor and the presentation was beautiful.

Didn't turn out -- bacon didnt get crisp quick enough -- i overdid the asparagus, cheese, and tomatoes. I had doubled the recipe, so maybe that's part of what went wrong... but it really didn't turn
