Grilled Fresh Asparagus with Pancetta, Pepato Cheese, and Herbs


  • 1- 1/2 lbs jumbo or extra-large fresh asparagus, trimmed

  • olive oil, as needed

  • 2 Tbs grated pepato cheese (Romano cheese with peppercorns) or plain Romano

  • 3 oz thinly-sliced pancetta or 3 slices bacon, cooked crisp, then crumbled

  • 1 Tbs chopped Italian (flat leaf) parsley

  • 1 Tbs shredded basil

  • 1 Tbs shredded mint

Pancetta, pepato cheese and herbs make this dish an irresistible combination of spicy and savory.


  • Generously coat asparagus spears with olive oil. Grill over medium-hot heat. Turn frequently, until asparagus is lightly browned and tender-crisp, about 6 minutes for extra-large and a minute or two more for jumbo. Arrange on a warmed serving platter.
  • Sprinkle with cheese, pancetta, and herbs.
