I love this simple recipe, because it can double as a tasty appetizer for entertaining just as well as a snack that even kids love! If you can't get your hands on jumbo asparagus, regular asparagus works fine, too - if you find really thin asparagus, you could even double up on them.

Image of Asparagus And Ham Rollups

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch jumbo asparagus (ends trimmed (10 to 12 spears))
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest (from half an orange)
  • 10 to 12 thin slices honey ham or prosciutto cotto if available (patted dry)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. On a small, rimmed baking sheet, toss the asparagus with the Parmesan, oil and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt. Bake until the stalks are easily pierced with the tip of a knife, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the mascarpone, orange zest and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt until smooth and spreadable.
  4. One at a time, fold the slices of ham in half and spread each with 1 teaspoon of the mascarpone mixture. Place one spear of cooled asparagus at one end of the slice and roll the ham around the asparagus. Repeat for the remaining asparagus. Place the rolls on a parchment-paper-lined tray and store in the refrigerator, wrapped in plastic wrap, until ready to serve. Serve chilled.

    I love these as snacks during the week. Great low-carb and high protein snack. It's filling without weighing you down.
