1 pound asparagus, tough ends trimmed and discarded
8 ounces bacon
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 oz cream cheese

2 tablespoons water
Italian seasoning

1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Wrap 2-3 asparagus spears with a slice of bacon. Place spears on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on the tips and ends of the asparagus (avoiding the bacon). Roast for 8-10 minutes, until the asparagus is cooked through and the bacon becomes crispy.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the cream cheese with the water and Italian seasoning. Microwave on medium setting for 45 seconds.

3. Plate the asparagus and drizzle the Cream cheese over the asparagus. Serve immediately.
