Ingredients

Asparagus

  • 1 lb. asparagus spears ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Smoked paprika
  • 17 thin slices prosciutto cut in half lengthwise (about 7 ounces)
  • 1/4 c. shredded parmesan

Instructions

  1. Cook La Terra Fina Spinach Artichoke Quiche according to package directions.  
  2. Heat the oven to broil and arrange a rack about 5 to 6 inches below the heating element.

  3.  Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, brush with melted butter and season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Toss until the spears are evenly coated with the butter and spices. 

  4. Starting just under the scaled tip of the asparagus, wrap each spear with 1 slice of prosciutto in a downward spiral toward the cut end, just barely overlapping the seams of the prosciutto. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining asparagus, leaving as much space as possible between each spear while still fitting all of them onto the baking sheet.

  5. Broil for 3 minutes, flip the asparagus over and continue to broil until the asparagus is charred in spots and the prosciutto is crisped and browned, about 3 minutes more. Serve with quiche.
