If you can't find the Philadelphia Cooking Creme, feel free to omit (the Crispy Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus is great as-is!) or substitute with 1/4 cup Philadelphia Cream Cheese mixed with 2 tablespoons mayonnaise + 2 tablespoons water and your favorite chopped fresh herbs.

Ingredients:

1 pound asparagus, tough ends trimmed and discarded
8 ounces prosciutto, very thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup Philadelphia Cooking Creme (any flavor, I used Italian Cheese and Herb)
1 tablespoon water

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Wrap 2 asparagus spears with a slice of prosciutto. Place spears on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on the tips and ends of the asparagus (avoiding the prosciutto). Roast for 8-10 minutes, until the asparagus is cooked through and the prosciutto becomes crispy.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the Philadelphia Cooking Cream with the water. Microwave on medium setting for 45 seconds.

3. Plate the asparagus and drizzle the Philadelphia Cooking Cream over the asparagus. Serve immediately.
