Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto and Cheese

Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto and Cheese by 2sistersrecipes.com
 

Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto and Cheese are thin asparagus spears, wrapped in crispy prosciutto with melted Swiss cheese roasted to perfection, making this a divine dish to serve anytime.

This is an easy appetizer to make for the holidays.  Paired with salty cured meat such as prosciutto along with Swiss cheese melted inside adds amazing umami-rich flavors to the asparagus, making it taste just perfect.

 

We’d like to call these “asparagus rollatini.”

This is a super fast and delicious recipe for those who are short of time.  Like me!  It’s best to use thin asparagus because of the “no need to steam or boil” before roasting.

And this recipe only takes about 10 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes or less to roast.

No need to add any salt, because the prosciutto and cheese add enough flavor to the asparagus that no one will even notice it missing!

Roasted Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto and Cheese will make a pretty presentation as an appetizer.

No need to use a fork either,  just pick one up and eat it.  Kids will love them too.  Best when served warm or at room temperature.

Enjoy!

  1. So lovely. I’ve done the asparagus and prosciutto combo, but never with the cheese. I love that you used Swiss. Great choice! Merry Christmas!

  2. Such a perfect AND beautiful antipasto idea! Your photography is so incredible! What camera do you use and what settings! Truly professional! Happy Thanksgiving to both of you and your families! I am grateful for your friendships!

    1. Roz you are so sweet! Thank you always for your lovely comments. WE love you! The camera I use is a Nikon 3000 and the setting is basically on auto. But what I learned is to take the photos near a window on a sunny day is always best. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. We too are grateful for your friendship! Un abbraccio, Anna and Liz
