| This is a very simple, but surprisingly elegant and extremely delicious little dish. Alone, it's wonderful, but you could also lean 3 of these onto a nice salad, with a goats' cheese vinaigrette, a couple of toasted pine nuts and a grilled fig (just one!), and you'd have something impressive!|
It's quick and easy to prepare. The only things you need are asparagus, pancetta (Italian BACON!!), oil, salt and pepper!
I've left this simple, but there are many things you could do with this. A light squeeze of orange juice, and a little orange zest tossed into the oil, would be just delightful! As would some herbs. Rosemary, perhaps? A few chili flakes for a back-of-the-throat kicker, if that's your thing ... This is also just excellent if you grill it, but ... be careful ... the pancetta wants to fall off. Be deliberate and clear in your movements and grill that stuff up! TASTY!
