Asparagus, Bacon, Tomato Bowl

Asparagus, Bacon, Tomato Bowl

  • 1 # asparagus, tender parts, chopped to 3/4″ pieces
  • 12 oz. bacon, raw, cut into 1″ or shorter pieces
  • 1 small onion, finely sliced
  • 4 small to medium cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 16 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 T. Greek dressing
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium to medium high heat. Add bacon and stir to separate pieces.*
  2. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then add onion slices and stir.
  3. Cook another 3-5 minutes, add asparagus, stir again, and then cover the pan to help steam the aparagus.
  4. After about 3 minutes, remove the lid, stir in the garlic, and replace the lid.
  5. When the asparagus is cooked, but before it’s mushy, remove heat, and add the can of tomatoes and Greek dressing. Stir well and serve with a side of bread.

*I used kitchen scissors to cut through the whole bag of bacon. I thought that would be easier than trying to slice each piece individually. It worked well. 🙂
