Asparagus, mushrooms, prosciutto, parm... I love them all, so I decided to put them all together. This is a great veggie side to go with lasagna, seafood and steaks.

Saute

Ingredients

1/2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/2 Tbsp
butter
2 slice
prosciutto, paper thin
6 medium
cremini or white button mushrooms, cleaned & sliced
6 stalk(s)
fresh asparagus, tough ends removed & cut bite-sized
1 pinch
fine sea salt
1 pinch
black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 Tbsp
parmesan cheese, freshly grated/shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Gather all ingredients & prep vegetables.
2
Pour oil into medium nonstick skillet, add butter.
3
Place over medium heat; when butter is melted, add prosciutto; cook 1 to 2 minutes, until prosciutto is fairly crisp; remove from heat immediately; remove prosciutto from skillet to small plate or bowl, leaving oil in skillet.
4
Break or cut meat into small pieces (I use kitchen shears) & set aside.
5
Return skillet to medium heat; add asparagus and mushrooms; sauté 8 (or so) minutes, adding salt and pepper toward end of cooking time (go easy on the salt because the prosciutto and cheese are both salty!) Stir in crispy prosciutto bits.
6
Remove to warm serving dish; sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
