Ingredients

  • 8 large asparagus spears fresh, if possible
  • 4 ounces crescent rolls 1/2 of a standard-sized refrigerated tube
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tbs. seasoning salt
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 4 slices prosciutto optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Open the crescent roll tube and cut each crescent triangle in half lengthwise.
  • Mix the Parmesan and seasoning salt in a small bowl. Generously coat both sides of each triangle of dough with the mixture.
  • If you wish to add prosciutto, lay a slice of the meat on the coated crescent roll. Top with one asparagus spear. Wrap the asparagus with the crescent roll by placing the crescent roll tip on the top of the asparagus stalk. Twist around the asparagus (and optional prosciutto), making a spiral.
  • Place the asparagus/crescent bundles on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with the leftover Parmesan cheese mixture and shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake for 13-15 minutes at 350 degrees F (following the baking instructions on the crescent roll package).
  • Serve and enjoy!
