Rich, creamy Alfredo Sauce and Fettuccine noodles topped with bundles of Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto, roasted to perfection. This is an easy weeknight dish that packs a ton of rich flavor and feels like you ordered it at a restaurant.


  • Asparagus Bundles
  • 1 bunch Asparagus
  • 1 package Prosciutto (or Serrano Ham)
  • Fettuccine Alfredo
  • 1 package Fettuccine Noodles, cooked according to package directions
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1.5 cups Heavy Cream
  • 2 cups Grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Basil
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, rough chopped (optional)
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper and Salt to taste



Preheat oven to 425 degrees.


Start water to boil for pasta.

Asparagus Bundles


Carefully separate a single slice of Prosciutto and lay it flat on a cutting board.


Take 3-4 Asparagus spears and lay them in a bundle, perpendicular to the ham, at one end of the ham slice.


Fold the short side of the ham over the asparagus and continue to roll the bundle into a tight roll.


Repeat for remaining asparagus and ham. You should get 4-6 bundles.


Lay bundles on a rimmed sheet tray and bake for 10-15 minutes, turning halfway through. Bundles are done when the asparagus is tender and the ham is browning and crispy.

Fettuccine Alfredo


In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter and add cream. Bring to a simmer and cook while stirring for 2 minutes.


Add Parmesan cheese and whisk until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth.


Season with dried herbs and add salt to taste.


Let sauce simmer and thicken, stirring often.


Drain noodles and transfer sauce to empty pasta pot. Add noodles and toss to coat noodles with sauce. Add parsley if using, and toss to combine.


Using tongs, place a serving of Fettuccine on a plate and crack black pepper over the noodles. Top with 1-2 Asparagus Bundles.
