Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Spears with Tomatoes and Taleggio Cheese

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus Spears with Tomatoes and Taleggio Cheese

MikeAndKim

"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!"

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.
