ASPARAGUS and PROSCIUTTO ROLLS
The combination of flavors in this recipe will make you and your friends very, very
happy! To serve 4, you’ll need:
1 lb. fresh asparagus, ends trimmed (cut, break, peel – whichever works for you)
4 oz. sliced prosciutto (good quality ham is ok too)
4 oz. cream cheese
Preheat your oven to 375. In a large pot of boiling water, blanch the asparagus for
about a minute then drain it well. Lay out a slice of the prosciutto, spread with
about a teaspoon of the cream cheese, then roll it around an asparagus spear.
When they’re all rolled up, place on a sheet tray and bake for about 10 to 15
minutes. You want the asparagus still crisp and the prosciutto kind of crinkly.
Place on a serving tray and enjoy – they’re salty, creamy, and wonderful.
