During my high school years I would come home to my grandmothers house after school. She decided to make me a snack that she though I would enjoy, and it ended up being her go to snack for weeks after that! Imagine crispy prosciutto flavouring asparagus sprigs...yum!


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chives chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon course black pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano
  • 10 slices prosciutto


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees

In a bowl toss together the asparagus, olive oil, chives, lemon zest, parmigiano reggiano and black pepper. Divide the mixture into 5 bunches. Line 2 slices of prosciutto one on top of each other, place the bunch of asparagus on top and wrap.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the asparagus on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the asparagus is cooked.

*Try this recipe with individual sprigs of asparagus great for appetizers!
