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.

Method:
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

Step-By-Step

1Gather all ingredients & prep vegetables.
2Pour oil into medium nonstick skillet, add butter.
3Place 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.
4Break or cut meat into small pieces (I use kitchen shears) & set aside.
5Return 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.
6Remove to warm serving dish; sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
7Recipe may be multiplied. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
