About this recipe: An impressive little side dish of asparagus wrapped in bacon or pancetta. You can do the assembly ahead of time and then roast just before serving. What a lovely presentation this makes!

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.

  3. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bacon is crisp and the asparagus is tender.
