Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus – one of the easiest recipes you’ll make using just two ingredients! Perfect for an appetizer, snack, or side dish for the holidays!
In college, I was OBSESSED with the show “Friends.”
Actually, who am I kidding, I’m still obsessed with that show.
Do you remember the episode where Ross writes out his list of people he could cheat on Rachel with and then laments it? Bahaha…. Or what about “PIVOT!!! PIVOOOT!!”
What got me thinking about that episode?
Well I was listening to Pandora at a Coffee Cafe, which is my normal work routine, and one of Adam Levine’s songs came on.
Adam Levine is definitely my celebrity crush. Not only do I love his music, but he is one good looking musician. I think there is something about a guy that sings or plays guitar that has always made me weak in the knees. In fact, want to know something funny. When I was dating, I made my “what I want in a husband list.” Like every smart girl does. 🙂
And “he plays guitar” was on my list. When Mike proposed to me, he wrote me a song, brought me to a park, whipped out his guitar and sang me the song. YUP! Dreams do come true ladies!
Any who, Adam Levine. Yup. He’s my celebrity crush and the main reason I watch THE VOICE. Well, that and I love the banter between him and Blake Shelton. It cracks me up!
Do you have a celebrity crush?
I know my husband does … ahem… Carrie Underwood. Apparently he has a thing for tall blondes, which I guess is good for me because I fit that category. 🙂 hehehe
Ok, enough of the small talk. Let’s get down to business, these Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus!
Pretty much, you haven’t had an easier recipe in your life!
TWO INGREDIENTS PEOPLE! It can’t get easier than that.
Wrap up those asparagus, throw them in the oven and viola. Veggies just got tastier wrapped in meat ya’ll!
The asparagus still has a bit of a bite to it after roasting them in the oven but the prosciutto gets nice and crispy. It’s seriously the most amazing bite ever!
