Mmmmmmmmmm Monday

Well - My goal to try a new recipe each week has been a success. Today I tried making Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus. I had never had Prosciutto so when I saw this recipe on the Weight Watchers website, I decided to make this my new food for this week. Well turns out I should probably make this week Blah Monday instead of Mmmm Monday. I DO NOT LIKE PROSCIUTTO!

Here is the finished product. Come to think of it, the recipe calls for balsamic vinegar and black pepper - two things Im not a fan of! Haha. Well week one fail. Next week I am going to attempt a soup!

Recipe - 2 points for 2

Ingredients (From the Weight Watchers website)

1/2 tsp table salt, for cooking water

1 pound(s) asparagus, thick spears, ends trimmed (about 20 per bunch)

6 oz Casa Italia Prosciutto, or other brand, thinly sliced into 20 pieces

1 Tbsp light cream cheese

1 tsp balsamic vinegar, good-quality

1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste


  • Lightly spread a dab of cream cheese down center of each prosciutto rectangle
  • Wrap prosciutto around asparagus so it covers stalks.
  • Sprinkle with vinegar and season with several grinds of black pepper just before serving.
