  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Lower asparagus into the water, and cook for 1 minute, 2 minutes if the spears are thick.
  3. Lay one slice of meat on a plate. Layer a slice of cheese on top of the slice of meat. Place 3 to 4 asparagus spears at one end of the cheese and meat, and sprinkle with black pepper to taste. Roll the cheese and meat up over the asparagus, and secure with a toothpick. Place asparagus rolls in a casserole dish. Once all of the asparagus rolls have been arranged in the casserole dish, pour melted butter over the entire dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crumb mixture has formed a crust over the asparagus rolls.

I always follow a recipe exactly the first time out, as I did here. I received several compliments for the dish, but had plenty left over. Next time, I think I'll just blanch the asparagus and t...

I think this is a great side dish to serve with a simple main course like a beef tenderloin or grilled pork chops. The first time I made this I had extra prosciutto so I used two slices per bun...

Very good. I used sliced ham and steamed the asparagus instead of boiling. Also used a half-slice of cheese but next time will use the whole slice. Not sure about the proportions...I thought ...

Since I do not eat beef/pork I make Asparagus Rolantina by substituting ham with smoked turkey slices I buy in Costco. This attractive dish makes a wonderful impression on everyone to whom I se...

My husband gave this 5 stars. He kept stating that it was "awesome asparagus". He loves asparagus, but felt this was extra good. I found it to be good, but very rich. As usual, I altered the...
