Speck Wrapped Asparagus

What you need:
Olive oil
Speck (thinly sliced)

Wash your asparagus and snap off the ends. Put on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with olive oil and salt. Toss it together. Then wrapped each piece with speck. I usually need 2 pieces to completely wrap it. Bake at 500 for 15 minutes. Drizzle with fresh olive oil and serve!!!!

We had it for dinner tonight with some Montasio & pecorino cheese. Perfection.

Tuna on Tomato Antipasta

I had these at an amazing restaurant in Soave, Italy last weekend. As soon as I tasted this, I knew I needed to replicate it!  

What you need:
Tuna in oil
Green or black olives
Roma Tomatoes
Black Pepper

Add a Tbsp of mayo to a can of tuna (do not drain oil). Add black pepper to taste & mix. Rinse and cut your tomatoes into halves. Scoop out the inside so it becomes a bowl. Add your tuna mix & top with olives! 
You can slice your olives, add it whole or mix it into your tuna. Anyway you want to serve it will be great! These are fantastic at dinner parties to serve as a first dish (which is how i had it at the restaurant) or to make for yourself for lunch! Enjoy!!!!
