Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto

By Ange's Table

Hello and good morning to you!  How are you doing today?

It’s the start of another week.  Do you have anything planned?  Will you get to visit any of your friends or family this week?

I have been home mostly, and I still like being able to have dinner ready for my family when my husband gets home from work.  It so nice to be able to sit down to a meal at a normal hour, and not come home after working all day, to prepare a meal that we wont be able to eat for 2 hours.  Having dinner close to 8pm most week nights was the normal in our house.  When you get up at 4:30am like my husband does, or even 6:05am like I used to, eating that late, then laying down for bed is never fun.  I definitely have less acid reflux not eating a large meal so close to my bed time.

Even though I am not working outside of the house right now, I am still very busy with Ange’s Table.  I really want to know how I was able to fit everything in.  

This Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto sounds fancy.  And hard to make.  But let me let you in on a little secret, it has to be one of my most simple, easiest side dishes that I make.  It has 3 ingredients, and cooks in the oven while you make the rest of your meal.  Looking for a way to get more green veggies in your diet, this is the way.  Anything wrapped in pork is a winner in my book!
