Asparagus Wraps

20130325_195805

Wraps are a very healthy way to get ride of your sandwich cravings.  You can take everything that you would normally put on a sandwich and place it into a tortilla, and you get a meal that you can have on a diet.  They have also come a long way since you can now get wheat, flour, tomato  spinach and many other flavors to to your tortillas.  One way to make make a wrap easier, is to have your vegetables prepared for every day use.  This will save you time.

I always have issues finding healthy meals that I like.  Many of them are too bland or just do not appeal to me.  This recipe was given to me by a friend.  They told me that they tried it and it was very flavorful.  So, I thought that I would give it a try.  It really does have a great taste and is filling.   I served this meal with fresh fruit to balance it out.  You could also try a rice dish or a salad.  Having the freshness helps bring out all of the other flavors.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Italian salad dressing

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced (a minimum of 8 slices)

1 pound fresh asparagus

2 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

4 flour tortillas

12 thin slices prosciutto

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

2. Whisk the Italian dressing and mustard together.  Place the mozzarella in a shallow dish.  Pour the mixture over the cheese.  Make sure to coat both sides. Set aside.

3. Place the asparagus onto a baking sheet.  Add the oil, salt and pepper and toss.  Cook in the oven for about 8 minuets or until they are crisp tender.

4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

5. Brush the inside of the tortilla with marinade.  Then top with 2-3 slices mozzarella, 3 slices prosciutto, and a quarter of the asparagus.  Tightly roll up.  Brush the outside with the marinade.

6. Brown the marinade until golden brown and the mozzarella is melted.

7. Slice and serve.
