My in-laws sent me home with lots of leftover Easter goodies, including a lot of leftover ham.  I made this recipe as a creative way to use the leftovers and yet be it’s own dish with its own flavor.  You could also use prosciutto here, but I really needed to use up all the ham I had!

April should really be named “Asparagus Month”.  I feel that it is the iconic vegetable of Spring, and if you are going to try to eat foods in season (one they are cheaper and two they have a better chance of being locally grown), go looking for some asparagus right now!!!! .  When I was a little kid I couldn’t stand asparagus.  That may have had to do somewhat with the fact that my parents used to boil asparagus, which I think brought out it’s bitterness too much.  Well, when I was about 14 or so, my dad made this recipe that finally got me to like it, and it was something very similar to this.


P.S. this dish goes awesome with garlic mashed potatoes!
