Asparagus with Roasted Red Pepper and Prosciutto

Thick juicy spears of tender asparagus, stuffed with sweet roasted red pepper and creamy aioli, and wrapped with salty savory prosciutto.  This is a great appetizer or first coarse, and can be prepared a bit in advance, served either at room temperature, or cold.  It’s also great for brunch.

This is a favorite combination in our house.  The sweet Italian sausage adds wonderful flavor and works well in combination with the pizza sauce and roasted red peppers.  If you wish you could also use a spicy Italian sausage.

Farro with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Adpated from Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy by Lidia Bastianich

I cooked this dish about a week ago from one of my new favorite cookbooks, Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy.  I got the book a year ago for Christmas, and cooked a couple dishes right away.  I recently picked the book up again and cooked three dishes just this past week and have a couple more planned for this next week.  The dishes are fairly quick and easy and most use staple ingredients I already have.   This dish makes a huge amount, so it’s great for company or for freezing extra for an easy meal later in the month.  You could cut the recipe in half, but it takes the same amount of time to make more or less, so I would just make it all.  It’s best to make fresh roasted peppers, rather than using the jarred peppers for this dish.
