You can make this starter with only two ingredients: asparagus and prosciutto. But I like to go the extra mile, wrapping the asparagus in meat AND buttery crescent rolls -- trust me, it's beyond fabulous.
- 1 lb. asparagus, washed and trimmed
- 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls
- 6-8 slices of prosciutto, Serrano ham, or regular ham, cut into long, thin strips
Wrap one strip of prosciutto/ham around each asparagus spear, starting at the bottom, and spiraling up to the tip.
Unroll crescent dough. Using a sharp knife, cut dough into long, thin strips. Spread each strip with a very thin layer of mustard. Wrap one strip of dough around each asparagus spear (over-top of the ham), spiraling as before.
Place wrapped spears on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 until rolls are browned and asparagus is tender -- about 10-12 minutes.
