Roasted Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto de Parma
We love roasted vegetables and this takes the great flavor of roasted asparagus and adds additional flavors. The roasted asparagus is good as a side dish on its own. Or with the addition of prosciutto and parmesan, an appetizer or first course.
A bunch of asparagus, cleaned and ends trimmed
1 teaspoon olive oil
a few shakes of Alfie's seasoning
Slices of Prosciutto de Parma, cut in half
Thin slices of Parmigiano-Reggiano
spritz of lemon
Preheat oven to 425F.
Line a sheet pan with foil. Mix the asparagus with olive oil and roast for about 7-8 minutes.
When the asparagus is done, spritz with some lemon. (this would be good as a side dish)
Wrap the Prosciutto and a slice of the Parmesan around the asparagus. (this can be individual asparagus or in bunches)
Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
