Bacon & Asparagus Casserole

For 2 weeks I've received baby asparagus from Bountiful Baskets so tonight I decided to use them. I created a yummy casserole! It smelled really good and tasted really good. Now I want more asparagus so I can make it again with different variations, like adding onions or other things. It was salty enough because of all the bacon, so don't add more. I used 3- 2.5 oz packages of real crumbled bacon pieces, it was quite salty, so if you don't like salty flavor maybe just add 2 packages.
Bacon & Asparagus Casserole
By Kristi Black

2 baby asparagus bunches, chopped
2-3 pkgs real crumbled bacon pieces
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp parsley flakes
1 pkg cream cheese
1 c grated cheese (I used Fiesta Blend, but any would be good) 

Mix all ingredients together, except grated cheese. Spray an 11x7 baking dish and place the food into it. Bake at 400º about 30 min. Add grated cheese for the last 3-5 min. of baking. There is no need to add extra salt, the bacon makes it salty enough.

 Chop up the baby asparagus.
 Add in the bacon pieces, garlic and parsley.
 Add the softened cream cheese.
 Mix together.
Place into a 11X7 baking dish.
 Back at 400º about 30 min., add cheese for last 3-5 min. of baking.
