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.

How To Make special asparagus

  • 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.
