After the bacon grilled asparagus in the summer, I have been trying very hard to eat asparagus when I find some. Thing is that it’s winter and it is very hard to find good looking asparagus for a decent price. So this vegetable side dish was a super treat. The tart lemon and vinegar pair well with the slightly bitter asparagus and then you get hit with the salty pancetta in a symphony of flavour that is truly happy. Another great side that is pretty simple but will wow the crowd like something super fancy.
This asparagus may be stewed in its own juices, but it’s far from being bitter about it.
Sorry. I totally had to do that. Don’t know why. Really though, very tasty side dish. The pancetta lends a posh feel that really snazzes up a meal. You could serve this with a simple grilled chicken breast or pork chop and people would be all “what’s the occasion?”. What simple dish do you make that has people thinking they’re getting the star treatment? Leave a comment below and tell us about your best – simple recipes.

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
