Ingredients
  1. 16 fresh asparagus spears
  2. ¼ cup balsamic dressing
  3. 7 ounces garlic and herb cream cheese
  4. Pinch black pepper
  5. ¼ cup roasted red peppers, finely diced and patted dry
  6. 2 teaspoons minced fresh chives
  7. 4 ounces capicola, sliced into thin 3-inch rounds
  8. 4 ounces Roth® Grand Cru® Reserve, shaved
Instructions
  1. Trim bottoms of asparagus so each spear is approximately 6 inches in length. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the outer layer of skin.
  2. Add asparagus and balsamic dressing to a plastic bag or container. Seal tightly and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. Combine cream cheese, black pepper, roasted red peppers, and chives in a mixing bowl, and stir until well combined.
Assembly
  1. Layer 2 slices of capicola so they overlap slightly. Spread 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture over sliced meat and layer 2 to 3 Grand Cru® Reserve shavings on top of spread. Place a marinated asparagus spear onto one end of the meat and gently roll meat and cheese around asparagus.
