A simple supper of delicious ingredients, perfect for two.
Ingredients : A bunch of asparagus, washed, trimmed and peeled. 10 slices of Italian Prosciutto ham or similar. Clove of garlic sliced into matchsticks. A sprig of thyme. 160 grams of Saint Marcellin soft goat cheese or similar. Crusty bread to accompany.
Blanch the asparagus in boiling salted water until just tender. Stud the goat cheese with the garlic matchsticks and a few thyme leaves and bake at the top of a pre-heated oven (180C/ gas Mk 4) for 10 to 12 minutes until warmed through and turning golden. When the asparagus has cooled slightly wrap each spear in half a slice of prosciutto.
Serve with salt, pepper, the baked cheese and a hunk of crusty bread and a good Sauvignon Blanc – wonderful!
