Prosciutto wrapped asparagus /// Recipe Wednesday
Melt in your mouth yummm. Again, something easy and lighter this time around as well spring will be here within a blink of an eye and those extra treats from this winter are pissing me off and hanging around LOL... So I made this with wild rice and sliced cucumbers and a fabulous glass of wine. (My daughter would have nothing to do with this recipe though, so a bowl of mac and cheese and carrots for her. Enjoy!
1/2 pound prosciutto, sliced
1/2 (8 ounce) package Neufchatel cheese, softened
12 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Spread prosciutto slices with Neufchatel cheese. Wrap slices around 2 or 3 asparagus spears. Arrange wrapped spears in a single layer on a medium baking sheet.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until asparagus is tender.
