Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Turkey –phase 1-4, serves 4-6

Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Turkey –phase 1-4, serves 4-6
adapted from
1 lb. thick asparagus spears, woody ends trimmed
1 lb. thinly sliced, low sodium turkey breast

Olive oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400F/205C. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. (If you have two or more baking sheets, and room in the oven, you can cook all the wrapped asparagus at once.)

Trim the woody ends of asparagus spears, making all pieces the same size. Roll a piece of turkey around each piece of asparagus, securing with a toothpick inserted horizontally so the piece of asparagus will lay flat on the baking sheet. Lay asparagus on the olive oil sprayed baking sheet, staggering the pieces so you’ll be able to turn them.
Roast asparagus for 8-10 minutes on the first side, or until the Turkey is lightly browned. Turn asparagus pieces over and roast 5-7 minutes more on the second side, until asparagus is barely tender-crisp and Turkey is lightly browned on both sides.
Repeat with more asparagus pieces if you’re only using one baking sheet. Serve hot, with mustard dipping sauce (Walden Farms honey mustard dressing would work well here) on the side if desired.
