Sheet Pan Asparagus, Tomatoes and Bacon with Dijon Vinaigrette

I love the idea of sheet pan side dishes and meals, I really like being able to throw everything on one pan and go. Unfortunately, a lot of these sheet pan dishes, to me, can lack in flavor. I happened to have some asparagus left after making my asparagus, brie and prosciutto tart, so I decided to create an easy and flavorful sheet pan side dish that could be served with a weeknight dinner, to guests or even at a large gathering.

Making this is as simple as trimming the ends of your asparagus, slicing the tomatoes in half, and dicing a few strips of bacon. The vinaigrette is also super simple. It is just three ingredients and a little salt and pepper whisked together. This could definitely be modified using other vegetables that you have on hand. I would love to hear how you make this your own!
