Sheet Pan Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto & Hazelnuts
This recipe for oven baked asparagus is a perfect Spring side dish with just a few ingredients but tons of flavor. Just pop a sheet pan in the oven at 375 and roast everything together. Super simple and it takes just 10-minutes!
Break off the woody stems of each asparagus spear. The stalk will naturally snap where the woody part meets the tender part. Discard the woody, bottom ends.Chop the asparagus spears into ~2-inch pieces.
Chop the hazelnuts roughly. You want to chop the hazelnuts in half, but don't sweat perfection here. Just run your knife through the nuts a few times and it will be good.
In a medium bowl, mix together the salt, lemon zest, crushed red pepper flakes, granulated garlic, and olive oil. Add the asparagus and hazelnuts to the bowl. Toss to coat everything in the spiced olive oil.
Spread the asparagus mixture on a sheet pan leaving about ¼ of the pan free for the prosciutto. Place the prosciutto on the pan.
Roast for about 10-minutes until the asparagus is tender and the prosciutto is mostly crisped. Check the pan after 7-minutes and if the prosciutto is look very crisp at that point, remove it from the pan and allow the asparagus to keep cooking.
To plate, move the asparagus to a serving platter. Crumble the prosciutto over the asparagus.
Look for asparagus that's about pencil-sized in thickness. If you can only find very thick spears, cut them in half lengthwise before chopping into 2-inch pieces.
