Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Remove the bottom inch from the asparagus spears then place into a large saucepan. Add enough boiling water to just cover the asparagus, bring to the boil for 2 minutes. You want the asparagus to remain slightly crunchy, but not raw, in the middle. Remove from the heat and drain.

  2. Place each prosciutto slice on a chopping board and place 2 cooked asparagus spears diagonally on top.

  3. Mix the parmesan and almond meal/flour in a small cup.

    Sprinkle a little of the parmesan/almond mixture across the asparagus, drizzle with a little cream, then roll up.

    Place each one in the baking dish. 

  4. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan/almond mix over the top. 

    Bake at 180C/350F for 15 minutes, or until golden and the cheese has melted.
