Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

pancetta wrapped asparagus

 

I love coming up with quick and easy appetizers, and these prosciutto wrapped asparagus is definitely one of my top favorites to make! You use less than 5 ingredients to create something mouthwatering and delicious for everyone to enjoy! Stephen and I love having friends over our house all of the time, and our friends just might be a little spoiled with the fact that we love food and we love to cook. We totally hate making plain old boring food. We like trying to mix our passion of using fresh quality ingredients, and utilize ingredients that we know people will just love as much as we do. So, there’s a lot of practice that goes into making the different recipes we have…but practice definitely makes perfect!

What’s really great about this recipe is the flavors! You get hints of sweetness from the asparagus, and the slight crunchy salty flavor from the cooked proscuitto. It doesn’t get much better than that, unless you added a slice of chocolate cake on the side with it.

The only thing we ask of people is to just enjoy, and maybe add in some ideas of what we can do next time! However, most are just in heaven and end up in a food coma. That’s the best compliment anyone can give lol. I hope you enjoy this super easy recipe, and stay on the look out for more!

This Prosciutto wrapped asparagus is a perfect side, an amazing appetizer, and a super nice snack any time of the day.

Ingredients

  • 1 Bundle of Medium sized fresh asaparagus
  • 1 package of thin sliced proscuitto
  • Cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400. Start a pot of boiling water.
  • Line baking sheet with foil.
  • Cut approximately 1 inch off the base of the asparagus spears. Drop the asparagus into the boiling water for 2 minutes. While asparagus is blanching, fill a large bowl with ice water.
  • Once asparagus is done blanching, place in ice bath for approximately 3-4 minutes. Remove asparagus and pat dry.
  • Wrap a piece of prosciutto around each spear. I found that one slice of prosciutto works for 2 asaparagus spears.
  • Place in oven for approximately 7-8 minutes.
