About this recipe: A quick, easy and flavourful side dish of asparagus brightly flavoured with lemon, prosciutto and pine nuts.
Instead of prosciutto, use pancetta cubes instead.
Since I don't eat meat or dairy I made this with vegetarian bacon instead of prosciutto, and Earth Balance margarine instead of butter. It was amazing, took it to a dinner party where everybody else was a meat eater and it was a huge hit. Didn't need any salt just a little pepper. I did add a dash of basil and oregano. - 10 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great recipe, although we thought it was way too lemony and we love lemon. I would cut it back to about 1/4 cup or so. We made the recipe as is and didn't change a thing. - 17 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was SUPER! I made the recipe as written except for the added salt. Prosciutto is salty enough. We all loved it, even the 4 year-old. It smelled wonderful while cooking and was very fast and easy to make. YUMMY! - 18 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
