A tasty and delightful dinner loaded with flavor and delicious ingredients! Fresh asparagus is mixed into a fabulous meal loaded with bacon, parmesan cheese and creamy alfredo sauce. This will become a new family favorite!
Tis the season for asparagus and this may be my favorite new recipe to use it!
This meal is packed with insanely delicious flavor. The asparagus, bacon, parmesan cheese and creamy alfredo sauce really knock this meal out of the park! This was a huge hit with my entire family, making this recipe classified as a winner.
My husband, in particular, could not stop RAVING enough about how yummy it was. I am pretty sure he went back for 4 helpings of it. My kids gobbled it up almost as fast as it hit their plates. That is saying something because one of them is an extremely picky eater.
Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables and I have a few really tasty recipes coming up that I am excited to share with you, today’s been one of them.
