These are few things I love more than a simple recipe. Most of my favorite foods are good food prepared simply and well. Lovely roasted asparagus prepared with prosciutto is one of those great dishes.
Prosciutto is good enough straight from the package, but I find I prefer it cooked and crisp, whether that’s on pizza or in a dish like this where little prosciutto “crisps” are a delicious, salty garnish. We buy uncured, nitrate-free prosciutto at Sprouts and love the flavor it adds. If you’re avoiding sugar, it’s a great sugar-free alternative to bacon. Milo and Sophie both love it cooked crisp like this, so even if I can’t talk them into trying the asparagus, I know they’ll eat up every last crumb of crispy prosciutto.
This is a super-speedy recipe that goes with almost any main dish. Serve it up with crisp halibut, next to a bowl of risotto, top it with a soft-poached egg, or pair it with your favorite chicken, beef, or pork. Really, just about anything.
Happy, happy spring!
