Promise me you'll keep this recipe for asparagus and prosciutto tart up your sleeve for when you need a tasty, light meal that takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare. It is simplicity itself with cream cheese on a layer of puff pastry with prosciutto wrapped asparagus on top!
Okay confession: I haven't cooked asparagus for a long time. And it's not because I don't like it or don't buy it. I buy it a lot but I just make these asparagus fries all the time. They were an accidental recipe that came through forgetting about the asparagus I had in the oven and they turned out to be one of my favourite ways to eat it!
Seriously, how can a pizza topped with asparagus and triple cream brie ever go wrong? This recipe includes a basic pizza dough recipe too!
I love one pot or one pan meals where you have protein and vegetables in one because there's less effort and less to clean up. And using asparagus as a tasty trivet for a baked fish is one of my favourite one pan meals!
Quick-to-cook asparagus is the perfect stir fry vegetable! Pair it with beef strips and some shishito peppers (or just more asparagus!) and you'll have dinner in 15 minutes flat!
So tell me Dear Reader, do you like asparagus? What is your favourite way to cook it?
