Asparagus Wrapped in Goat Cheese and ProsciuttoPosted by in Food
I made this dish for dinner one night, but it’s also perfect as an appetizer since it is definitely finger food. The recipe is very easy.
You need 1/2 piece of prosciutto for each stalk of asparagus. Cut the prosciutto the long way. Lay the strip of prosciutto down and spread a small amount of goat cheese on it (see my photo): you don’ t need much. Then wrap the prosciutto around the stalk in a spiral, so it goes from bottom to top. Place the stalk seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake on the top rack at 400 degrees until the asparagus is tender and the prosciutto is browned (about 20 minutes), turning the stalks over once halfway through.
The end result gives you tender asparagus, crunchy prosciutto, and a gentle tang from the goat cheese. Truly fabulous.

Thanks for making it easy for me to decide what to make as a side dish tonight! Sounds yummy.
That looks amazing. I do love asparagus and paired with goat cheese and prosciutto? Fabulous.
Sounds yummy! Did you make it for a main course or appetizer?
sounds really good. for a vegetarian version I suppose I could just leave out the proscuitto, but is there something you’d recommend to substitute?
You could wrap the green part of a scallion around it
It was a side dish for our dinner.
I made bacon wrapped asparagus the other day, but the addition of goat cheese could take it over the top!
I have a weird and total aversion to bacon that is not completely cooked and crispy and so I never use it to wrap stuff since it never cooks enough for me. The goat cheese is totally awesome.
