Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto

Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto

This happens to be my new favorite appetizer and I will be making it often. I liked how quick and easy this recipe was to make. I loved the salty pork with the roasted asparagus – the combination was perfect. We all thought it was a really delicious dish. This roasted asparagus makes an amazing appetizer but I think it would also be great as a side dish, especially for a holiday dinner.

Roasted Asparagus and Prosciutto:


  • 1 lb of asparagus, wooden ends removed
  • Prosciutto, sliced into thirds, lengthwise
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

How to Make Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with tinfoil (for easier cleanup) then coat with cooking spray.

Place the asparagus onto the baking sheet and drizzle with a bit of olive oil then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then toss to coat evenly.

Slice the prosciutto into thirds, lengthwise. Wrap each third of the prosciutto around the center of each asparagus spear.

  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. 🙂

  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.

  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.
