Recipe by Alida from My Little Italian Kitchen


My recipe for today is asparagus wrapped in parma ham with parmesan shavings, salad all drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It is an excellent starter if you are hosting a dinner party and quick to prepare.


  • Prep Time : 20 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10 minutes


  • fresh asparagus - 8
  • parma ham - 8 slices
  • fresh salad leaves - a handful
  • olives
  • red capsicum - 1
  • parmesan shavings
  • Azzuro extra virgin olive oil *
  • Due Vittorie Oro balsamic vinegar *
  • salt - pinch
  • cherry tomatoes - 6

* Available in the Azzuro Store


Wash the pepper, remove the ribs and cut it in half.

Wash the asparagus, cut off the thicker ends and steam or cook them for 4 minutes, just enough for them to be slightly soft but still "al dente". If your asparagus are thin you might want to cook them slightly less.

Heat up a griddle with a little olive oil and when it is very hot place the wrapped asparagus on it and cook them for a couple of minutes on both sides until the ham looks nice and crunchy.

When you have finished, flatten the pepper with your hands and cook it on the same griddle pan turning it on both sides. Press firmly with a spatula so that the pepper will get that lovely chargrilled look.

Now compose your dish: place the asparagus on the plate, the salad leaves, the cherry tomatoes, olives and the parmesan shavings. Slice the olives and decorate your dish to your liking.

Make a vinaigrette by mixing 2 tbsp of olive oil with 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt and dress your salad and asparagus with it.

Buon appetito!
