Pancetta-Wrapped Asparagus Recipe

This 2-Ingredient Appetizer Is Crazy Delicious

Roasted asparagus on its own is pretty great, but roasted asparagus wrapped in pancetta is on another level. This two-ingredient recipe couldn't be easier, and it makes for a crowd-pleasing appetizer, side dish, or dinner-party snack, especially during Spring when asparagus is in season.

You can roast, grill, or broil this asparagus, depending on your preference — it's nearly impossible to mess up.

Pancetta-Wrapped Asparagus Recipe 2010-05-12 12:19:18


1 pound asparagus
14 slices pancetta, thinly sliced (the thinner the better, as it will cook quicker)
Olive oil, for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Tightly wrap each asparagus spear in a slice of pancetta. Place on a platter and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the asparagus is browned and the pancetta is crispy.
  3. Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy!
