Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, Rob Style

I found this recipe on a friends Facebook page, and you know me, I had to play with it. I think it is supposed to be a side dish, but I think it works also as an entree.

2 lb fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
12 slc bacon, uncooked
1/2 c light brown sugar
1/2 c butter
1 Tbsp. Worcestshire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
Mozzerella sticks

 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
 Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles (3-4 pieces each), with Mozzarella stick in the middle. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting 1/2" from bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped asparagus with a toothpick. Arrange bundle in a shallow baking pan.
 Combine brown sugar and remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan; heat mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture over asparagus bundles.
 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until spears have begun to wilt, cheese has melted and bacon looks fully cooked. Enjoy!!!
