Sautéed Asparagus w/Prosciutto



A sure sign of Spring, is when you see a plethora of fresh asparagus at the market!




We’re big fans of asparagus here and vegetables don’t get much better, nor easier than this.  This time it’s decked out with a little garlic, wine, prosciutto and lemon pepper.  Swap out a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar for the wine, if you prefer, and maybe add a sprinkling of shaved Parmesan cheese to the finished dish. 

This is a scrumptious spring veggie dish and I hope you like it as much as we do!

Sautéed Asparagus w/Prosciutto

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
4 ounces sliced prosciutto, torn into bite-size pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons dry white wine
2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
½ teaspoon lemon pepper

Method:

Slice asparagus on a sharp diagonal about 2-inches long, leaving the tips whole.
Heat oil and butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Sauté garlic for a minute, stirring frequently.
Stir in wine.
Add asparagus and prosciutto, toss to mix.
Cook, tossing occasionally, until asparagus is bright green and crisp-tender, about 10 minutes, depending upon thickness.
Season with salt and lemon pepper.
Serves 4-6



ENJOY!

  2. Love asparagus too. A definite sign of spring. Proscuitto and asparagus is a really nice combination. Proscuitto lends a salty taste and with a slight crunch from sauteeing is delightful.

    Happy spring!

  9. Pam, This side dish is right up my alley! Love asparagus and we have one of the top producers of prosciutto in the USA right down the road from us! Benton's bacon, hams and prosciutto are used by chefs all over the country. Better yet, for us locals, he sells his product to use at very reasonable prices. I can't wait to try this simple but luscious recipe! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  13. I like the salty edge the ham adds to this. I have asparagus in the fridge that I was just going to grill but now maybe I'll do this instead.

  19. We just harvested our first asparagus of the season. It is fascinating to grow and they say a good bed of asparagus may grow for 20 years. We had to wait until the third season to pick it and this is it! So excited to try many new asparagus recipes in the weeks to come. I can not believe it grows 6 inches in one day! I go to work in the morning and come home to asparagus big enough to pick for dinner. Lovely recipe!
