Asparagus and Peas with Prosciutto

Asparagus with Peas

A classic springtime combination, peas and asparagus splash their verdant color across your tabletop and their fresh, grassy flavor across your tastebuds.

As Featured in The Applegatarian.

4 Servings | Total Time: Less Than 30 Mins


  • 1 (3-oz) package APPLEGATE NATURALS® Prosciutto
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 (14-oz) bag frozen peas, defrosted
  • 2 Tbsp salted butter, softened


  1. Tear the prosciutto into pieces and cook in a large skillet over moderate heat, stirring often, until browned and crisp. Transfer to a cutting board to cool. When cool, chop into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  2. Add the asparagus to the skillet along with ½ cup water and a large pinch of salt and cook over moderate heat until asparagus spears are bright green, 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the peas and butter to the skillet and cook until peas are bright green and just cooked through and asparagus is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
  4. Transfer peas and asparagus to a shallow bowl. Scatter the crisp prosciutto over top and serve at once.
