I teamed up with the Roth Cheese to bring you this Pasta with Asparagus, Mushrooms, and Prosciutto! I’ve been compensated for my time. All opinions are mine alone.

An easy, delicious pasta with asparagus, mushrooms, prosciutto, and cheese that’s perfect for spring! Ready in 30 minutes or less. Scroll down for a video and see how easy this is!

I love the flavors of spring: Slim, tender asparagus, earthy mushrooms, salty prosciutto and Roth’s Private Reserve cheese come together in the easiest pasta dish of all time!

To keep things easy, cook the pasta and the asparagus in the same pot (just add the asparagus later). Meanwhile, sauté the prosciutto and mushrooms. Toss everything together with butter and Roth’s Private Reserve cheese for a quick and tasty dish!

I picked Roth’s Private Reserve because it’s aged at least 6 months and the flavor is nutty and complex. You want some flavor in your cheese for this dish because it’s taking the place of sauce.

Dinner is full of the fresh flavors of spring and it’s ready in 30 minutes or less!

  1. I can eat soooo much of this! It’s fantastic!

  2. What kind of cheese is used? Is it a gouda? Mozzarella? Parmesan? I only see a name brand.  

    • Hi Becki, sorry about that! This post was sponsored by Roth Cheese so I listed only their brand name. And the Grand Cru isn’t any particular kind of cheese such as mozzarella or gouda. However, I’ve eaten it in spades and I can confidently say it most closely resembles Parmesan. I’ll add that to the recipe notes. Great question! Thank you! -Meggan
