  1. I just had roasted asparagus with my dinner tonight! The saltiness of the prosciutto sounds like a nice compliment.

  2. I've made it as a side dish, and it wasn't even a holiday. Good stuff!

    P.S. Thanks for your roast a chicken in your Dutch oven with a bed of fingerling potatoes, etc. idea, which I came to by Googling. Good dinner tonight. πŸ™‚

  3. I could not agree with you more, not only is this my favorite, but it is always the first snack platter that is finished on my functions.

  4. I <3 asparagus and I will definitely give this one a try. I love the simplicity of your pictures and your finished food photos look so delicious! I'm so glad that I found your blog. Thanks!

    Btw, I've never bought prosciutto before. Is it expensive?

  5. Delicious! We've been consuming our fair share lately as well. You know, you should combine these finger food recipes into a 'how-to' menu for making a great cocktail party in 60 minutes or less!! There are so doable!

  6. Pam, yet again, you demonstrate that with just a few ingredients one can create a magnificent simple appetizer or side dish.

    Many thanks for the idea…

  7. Looks so easy and tasty! Such a big crowd pleaser and perfect for a party too. I can't wait for asparagus to be back in season!

  8. In addition to living with you, I want to come to one of your parties. I'll bring the jaws of life to get me back out again.

  9. This is such a delicious appetizer! Sometimes I make a version where I'll wrap the asparagus with ham and put a little cream cheese inside.

  10. Looks delish. I actually have a variation I am making this weekend. Just has some cream cheese spread in the middle.

  11. I LOVE roasted aspargus. It really is the perfect way to cook the perfect vegetable. Then adding prosciouto! Perfection upon perfection.

  12. Just wanted to let you know that this is now MY favorite appetizer as well! Made them last night for dinner w/ my sister and her husband, and they both demanded the recipe. Thanks!

  13. This was SOOOO good. I’ll never eat asparagus any other way again! It is really good with just a squeeze of lemon at the end. Yum!! I only had to roast for about 10 minutes, but I think my oven runs hot.
