Baking Asparagus – Roasted Asparagus, Prosciutto & Parmesan

Here’s a very nice side dish that goes beautifully with fish or chicken. It is easy to make and quite elegant. You can use fresh or frozen asparagus for this. They will both work well. Here is what you need for this:

Serves four

1 pound asparagus – trimmed
2 to 3 slices Prosciutto
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 TBS olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the asparagus in an oven proof dish and ‘weave’ in the Prosciutto. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Place in oven and roast for about 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and browned and asparagus is cooked through but still crisp. Serve and enjoy!
