Preparation

Blanche asparagus in salted boiling water until just tender but still bright green, 1 to 3 minutes. Refresh in ice water and drain.

Lay each sheet of prosciutto out on a work surface. Mix chèvre and cream cheese together and divide it into six portions. Press a layer of cheese at one end of each slice of prosciutto and sprinkle with coarsely ground pepper. Lay a basil leaf and slice of piquillo pepper on top of cheese. Place two asparagus spears crosswise on top of the peppers. Wrap prosciutto into a tight cylinder around the filling.

Chill the rolls for 10 to 15 minutes (or up to 2 hours) and then cut each in half on the diagonal, arranging them on a plate. Serve with White Truffle Vinaigrette.
