Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Garlic Cream Cheese Recipe | Bend Nutritional Therapy

Ingredients:

1 lb asparagus, washed and the tough ends trimmed 4 oz full fat cream cheese, brought to room temperature (I used Organic Valley brand from pasture raised milk) 4 oz nitrate/nitrite free prosciutto (I used Applegate Naturals) 1 large clove garlic, minced

extra virgin olive oil

sea salt

fresh ground black pepper

Instructions: Preheat your oven to 375° F. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and minced garlic. Carefully lay 2 slices of prosciutto on a cutting board, one on top of the other. Use a butter knife to spread 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture evenly across the prosciutto. Bundle 1/4 of the asparagus in your hands. Start at one end and roll the bundle to wrap in prosciutto. Place on a parchment lined or greased baking sheet. Drizzle the unwrapped ends with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
