Cured meat is loved for its rich, savoury flavour, and this easy lunch recipe puts prosciutto to great use. Crisp, nutty asparagus spears wrapped in salty prosciutto and baked in a gorgeously creamy mixture, all topped off with a crispy, cheesy crumb – lunch ideas don't get better than this!
- Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the tomatoes on a baking tray and toss with half the oil and vinegar. Roast for 5-10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix the cream and egg in a bowl. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each asparagus spear and arrange in a baking dish. Brush with the remaining oil, then pour in the egg mixture. Bake for 6 minutes, or until just set and golden.
- Scatter over the breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Bake for a further 1-2 minutes. Serve with the tomatoes and ciabatta.
