Grilled Goat Cheese, Asparagus & Prosciutto Sandwiches

1 pound asparagus, trimmed and halved crosswise
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground
black pepper
1/4 cup prepared basil pesto
16 slices Health Starts Here® Whole Grain Bread
1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto (8 slices)
1 (8-ounce) log Wellspringâ„¢ Creamery Cranberry Orange Goat Cheese
Olive oil spray

PREHEAT oven to 425°F. On a large baking sheet, toss asparagus with oil, salt and pepper, and then roast until just tender, about 10 minutes.

SPREAD pesto onto 8 slices of bread, and then spread goat cheese onto remaining 8 slices. Top goat cheese with prosciutto and asparagus and then with pesto-covered bread. Generously spray sandwiches on both sides with olive oil.

HEAT a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook sandwiches, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and hot throughout, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board, cut in half and serve.
