Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus 3
Sorry I missed you guys on Monday. I have had a major case of writer’s block and I’ve been kind of lame and haven’t tried a whole lot of new recipes lately.

I did make these delicious little bundles last week and they were a huge hit. When Joel saw me pull the asparagus out of the fridge, he immediately went into panic mode and got all wild eyed. He’s not a fan if you couldn’t tell. I quickly told him it would be smeared with cream cheese and wrapped in meat and that eased his mind a little. He tried it and actually really liked it. He even rated it as a “make again” item.

The asparagus was tender, the cream cheese was smooth and creamy and the prosciutto was salty and cripsy. A perfect combination of flavors and textures for a yummy side dish.
