Amazing Asparagus

This is one of the side dishes I added to our at home Valentine's Night celebration with Forrest and Rex. I wanted a side dish that was pretty and would make our night in seem special. We grilled steaks and had seafood stuffed mushrooms that were delicious, but this dish was the aesthetic star of the show. The vibrant colors and the unique presentation were suburb and they tasted delicious too! I highly recommend these quick and easy treats as a fun and simple way to spruce up any meal.

Puff Pastry Wrapped Asparagus and Prosciutto
Adapted from Cooking Light December 2011

  • 3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 30 long, thin strips
  • 30 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed and cut into 30 long, thin strips
  • Cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. Wrap 1 prosciutto strip around each asparagus spear, barber pole style.

Wrap the puff pastry strip around the spear following the line of the prosciutto.

Arrange spears on a baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining puff pastry strips, asparagus, and cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until pastry is golden and crisp.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
