A sophisticated blend of lemon, garlic, fresh asparagus, delicate goat cheese and tasty Prosciutto, this recipe makes a delicious appetizer, an attractive buffet item or a savory side dish.
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
16 medium fresh asparagus spears (about 1 pound), each trimmed to 5 inches
8 thin slices Margherita® Deli Prosciutto (about ¼ pound)
? cup soft goat cheese
Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine lemon juice, olive oil and garlic in large bowl. Add asparagus; toss to coat. Place asparagus in baking pan.
