I love to entertain, but with 3 kids aged five and under, I don’t always have a lot of time to put together something fancy. One of my favorite easy party snacks is this prosciutto wrapped asparagus – it looks elegant but it’s quick and simple to make, and it’s the perfect addition to a cheese plate or appetizer tray. I use my Q Squared NYC melamine plates and serving platters for entertaining, they’re beautiful, functional and the food looks great on them!
With young children in the house, plastic dishes have become a way of life. Until recently, most of our plastic dishes were in primary colors and covered in cartoon characters. Now that I’ve discovered the ruffled dinnerware collection from Q Squared NYC, we’re eating and entertaining on stylish melamine plates that also happen to to be kid friendly and shatter resistant!
Q Squared NYC was founded by mother-daughter team Nancy Young Mosny and Alaina Young who create luxury melamine tableware that’s made from the best food-safe plastic on the market. You would NEVER know that these dishes are not made of porcelain, they look and feel exactly like the real thing! I love that they’re dishwasher safe, virtually unbreakable and are perfect for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. The ruffled dishes and serveware are classic white, with a little extra flair from the texture and ruffled edges. I especially love the platter for when we have friends over. I fill up the platter with different types of cheeses, fruits and nuts, and fill up some ruffled dip bowls with olives and hummus. I add my prosciutto wrapped asparagus and it’s a party on a plate.
This prosciutto wrapped asparagus is so very easy to make – all you need is 4 ingredients and 15 minutes. Each piece of asparagus is coated in olive oil, wrapped in prosciutto, then seasoned with pepper. The asparagus goes under the broiler for a few minutes then out to my hungry guests, even my kids love this one!
Whether you’re serving prosciutto wrapped asparagus to friends or simply enjoying a home ccooked meal with the family, you’ll love the look and durability of these dishes. It’s been such a treat to enjoy elegant looking dinnerware again without having to worry about my girls accidentally shattering a plate!
