Sauteed Asparagus Pepperoni
A Pantry Staple + Seasonal Vegetable

My husband loves pepperoni.  Of course, my son is the shadow of his father.  So, I always have at least a bag of sliced pepperoni in my pantry all the time.  My mom and my grandma always look into what they have in the pantry and make their next meal or for new recipe ideas.  So, here is one of my concussion.

Sautéed Asparagus Pepperoni

Alternative for Asparagus

Some people do not like asparagus.  Or this vegetable is not in season.  So, any other alternative?  Cut green beans would be a good substitute.

Transform Sauteed Asparagus Pepperoni
To A Salad

Since the pepperoni is so tasty, you can toss it with short pasta.  Serve the salad either warm, room temperature or cold.


1.5-2 pounds Asparagus
1/8 -1/4 cup Diced/Sliced Pepperoni (if it's pre-sliced one, cut them into 3 parts)

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon Salt

  1. Take a piece of asparagus, hold both ends and slightly bend it
  2. The tough part will break apart from the tender part
  3. Use that asparagus spear as your measuring unit and align it with the rest of the asparagus spears and cut the tough parts and discard
  4. Then, cut the asparagus 1" long at an angle
  5. Preheat a big skillet at medium high heat
  6. Add Extra Virgin Olive Oil and pepperoni in and cook until the edge starts crispy; about 2 minutes
  7. Add asparagus and cook to desired crisp tender; about 5-8 minutes
  8. Salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately
