Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon in a Brown Sugar Sauce

Delicious and simple!  The asparagus is roasted to perfection and it becomes so tender and packed with flavor.  This is the perfect side dish.  Enjoy!
-2 lbs fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
-12 slices bacon
For sauce:
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
-1 Tbs soy sauce
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Divide the asparagus into 12 bundles (about 6-7 spears to each bundle).  Wrap each bundle into 1 slice of bacon (wrap it real tight).  Place each bundle onto a baking sheet, securing the bacon under each bundle.
In a medium saucepan, combine all the sauce ingredients, mixing well.  Bring mixture to a boil.  Pour evenly over each asparagus-bacon bundle.
Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until bacon looks nicely cooked.  Enjoy!
