Tips

  • don't leave the dough unattended it will dry out so work quickly with it while it's still cold
  • don't handle the dough too much or the pastry will not be light and flaky 
  • don't cut the dough back and forth, a pizza cutter works great to cut straight strips or use a very sharp knife
  • you can make these ahead of time, refrigerate them covered and bake them later
  • you can also bake them, cool, freeze them on a cookie sheet then place them in a covered container for another time and just reheat them
  • in a pinch, you can use refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • use black forest ham. roast beef thin, or another cold cut meat you like in place of the prosciutto

  • Italian fresh herbs or Italian seasoning 
  • granulated garlic powder
  • salt, pepper to taste

Even though I love this asparagus wrapped in flaky pastry, it's a basic recipe you can use for any vegetable you prefer.


The flavors are great with just about any sturdy vegetable that can be wrapped and not get soggy.
