Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Well hellloooo there!

I hope your holidays have been filled with lots of love and cheer thus far.  Mine have been quiet.

Spent the majority of my time with my folks. Patrick is in St. Louis visiting family.

The past few days have been a chance for me to reflect on the year and also to just sit back and relax.

I have had the past week off on vacation. My office has had a mandatory shutdown on holiday weeks this year. Which is good and bad I suppose.

It has been nice to be able to sleep in and catch up on some reading.

Santa brought my all I could have wanted and I hope he did for you as well.

If your family is anything like mine, you eat a lot during the holidays. I mean A LOT.

This recipe is based off of a Cooking Light recipe that is super easy and is also easy on the waistline. You could add cheese to this if you would like. I would suggest a provolone.

Enjoy!

  1. Wow, those look amazing. What a great idea. Sounds like a great holiday break.

  2. I’ve served asparagus wrapped in prosciutto before, but the buttery crunch of phyllo dough makes these extra special – perfect for New Years eve :) Wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2014, Raven!

  3. These look great, Raven! Looking forward to all you have to share in 2014…

  4. Wow! These look fantastic! I do a version with Boursin and uncooked prosciutto, but I’m dying to try yours :)

  5. I hope you did enjoy your holidays even though Patrick was out of town. :-( Thank you for sharing this asparagus with us. This would make a great appy for game day for sure!
