The very first meal that I made for my husband was fresh steamed asparagus, picked from the ditch at his parents farm. I over-steamed it and we had to eat mush. Oops! Since then I have learned how to properly prepare this delicious vegetable, and found some really great ways to spice it up. This recipe is one of our favorites!

This can be a side vegetable option, and it can also be served as cute little appetizers. Prosciutto tends to become very salty after baking, so this needs no additional seasoning other than a generous crack of black pepper.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 355°F.
  2. Trim the asparagus by snapping off and discarding the hard, woody end. Use a vegetable peeler to shave off the bottom half. You should yield approximately 5.6 oz trimmed weight.

  3. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and boil the asparagus for 2 minutes only. If your asparagus is thinner, you may need to only boil for 90 seconds.
  4. Drain in a colander and place on a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb excess moisture.

  5. Wrap a small piece of goat’s cheese around the asparagus, using one half of a slice of prosciutto to wrap it securely, as pictured. Repeat the process until all 12 have been made.
