I stumbled across a recipe for prosciutto-wrapped asparagus on Pinterest last week and thought they’d be perfect for Easter.
- a bundle of asparagus
- a package of prosciutto (mine had six slices)
- salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar to taste
Since prosciutto is such a fatty, salty meat, I didn’t add any salt or olive oil. But I am trying to keep things light(er). The asparagus tips got a little dry so you may want to lightly coat them with olive oil.
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Wrap prosciutto slices around each bundle.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
So good! And just enough meat for a lunch meal for me.
Of course, now I can’t find the original link (the recipe was so simple I didn’t bother to pin it or refer back to it). While looking for it to include in this post, I found a lot of variations. Some included sprinkling each bundle with Parmesan cheese while others covered them in a cheese sauce using Philadelphia Cooking Creme. All sound simply delicious.
I served it with a corn, avocado and tomato salad (recipe to be in a later post), deviled eggs and mint green tea. It was a perfect spring lunch on a sunny, warm Easter day here in Tuscaloosa!
