Asparagus Bundles In Lamb Prosciutto With Sage & Lemon

Asparagus Bundles In Lamb Prosciutto With Sage & Lemon
This is not only good for Thanksgiving, but it’s good for dinner parties, Christmas and Brunch. I’ve been known to make it with broccoli and bacon, string beans and deli pancetta and even pears and blue cheese. The result is the perfect little bundle for each person. Easy to prepare in advance and a real crowd-pleaser.

Asparagus Bundles In Lamb Prosciutto With Sage & Lemon
1 bunch asparagus
1/4 lb lamb prosciutto, (or regular if you can’t find lamb)
1/2 cup fresh sage
1 clove garlic
zest and juice from 1 lemon
2 Tbs olive oil
salt & pepper

Heat oven to 400°F. Break the asparagus stalks at their natural breaking point by bending one and seeing where it snaps. Some people use that first stalk to cut them all to that length, I prefer to break each one. Portion out the asparagus to how many you think is a good amount for each person. This also depends on the thickness of the asparagus you find. Wrap each bundle in the prosciutto and place on a greased baking sheet with the loose ends on the bottom. Next pulse the rest of the ingredients in a high powered blender. Dredge a little of the marinade on top of each bundle and roast until the asparagus is done and the prosciutto is crisp, about 15-20 minutes. Serve right away or at room temperature. Delicious!

Enjoy!

    1. I buy at at the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia, but you can find it in any city market. If you can’t find it just use one of the other suggestions in the post. It is a great addition to any menu.
