Asparagus Pate

I made this for a dinner party the other night. If you like asparagus, I'd say it was quite good.

16 oz. cream cheese
2 cans asparagus or one bunch - boil for about 5 minutes...should be extra limp! Chop into 1 inch pieces when cool.
one bunch of scallions, chopped
3 tbsp. horseradish sauce (80/20...didn't have this, so I added Janes's Crazy Mixed Up Salt. Horseradish probably would have improved it.)
6 slices bacon (You could skip this if looking for a veggie dish.)
pinch salt
1. Cook bacon. Let cool and break up into tiny small pieces. (Save a few pieces for the top of the dip.)
2. Place all ingredients into food processor or blender. Mix well.
3. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
4. Serve with vegetables, breads or crackers

Is it still that good even though you cook it that much? I don't like asparagus when it is really soft. What think?
