Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

2 lbs asparagus, tough part trimmed
olive oil
black pepper
8 rashers bacon

Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss asparagus in a bit of olive oil to coat and season to taste with pepper. Wrap about 1/8 of the asparagus in a rasher of bacon. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Place asparagus roll-ups on a rack over a sheet pan (you could use a grill pan). Place on middle rack in oven and cook until bacon is crispy and asparagus is cooked to your liking. Mine took 22 minutes.
