My husband teases me that I count everything instead of measuring by the pound. For this recipe, I like to bundle three asparagus stalks per person by wrapping them in a slice of prosciutto; so I count... :) Bundle more if you’d like.
Wash asparagus and bend each spear until it naturally breaks at the tough end of the stalk. Toss tough end away
Toss asparagus in a bowl with olive oil, and lightly salt
Bundle three asparagus stalks and wrap with one slice of prosciutto
Place asparagus/prosciutto bundles, single layer in a baking dish
Roast 20 minutes, then check with a fork for desired tenderness, roasting longer until you like the texture
Preheat Oven 400 degrees
Toss beans, onion and garlic in a bowl with the olive oil, and little salt
Spread all ingredients listed in step 1 on a baking sheet
Roast 20 minutes, then check for desired tenderness, while stirring, tossing and shaking and roasting in 5 minutes intervals, until you like the texture
Remove the beans from the oven and drizzle with vinegar. Top with the toasted pine nuts and salt and pepper to taste. I love this recipe. The texture will be much different than cooking green beans the traditional way. Enjoy!
