Roast Asparagus with Parma Ham

Simple!  Boil some trimmed asparagus spears until almost tender.  Cool in cold water and drain.  Wrap slices of ham around each spear, drizzle with oil and roast for 10 minutes in a hot oven.  Serve warm with cocktails.


  1. This has friday night written all over it. although we're not into asparagus season in scotland yet, so maybe it should wait till the end of my exams, would seem a nice excuse.

  2. The asparagus season has been a bit later down south too, but this warm weather will make it flood onto the market, and may bring prices down a little. You can vary the recipe too, by sprinkling with grated parmesan and allowing that to melt and crisp in the oven. Or you can put mozzarella over, but this does make it messy to eat! Not finger food any longer
