Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 24 pieces
Ingredients
  • Fresh asparagus spears (I used 24 spears
  • Thinly sliced prosciutto (I used a package of at least 12 slices)
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons good olive oil
  • Optional: fresh lemon juice and/or Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Line baking sheet or pan with foil.
  3. Rinse, dry, and then trim off tough bottoms of asparagus spears.
  4. Slice or gently tear each sheet of prosciutto lengthwise.
  5. Wrap one of the halved prosciutto sheets around each spear of asparagus and place on the foil-lined pan.
  6. Drizzle the wrapped asparagus with the olive oil and toss.
  7. Sprinkle with black pepper.
  8. Roast in oven for about 7minutes. If still not crispy, turn on the broiler for a couple of minutes until browned, watching carefully so as not to burn the prosciutto.
  9. Serve warm.
  10. Options: After roasting and before serving, squeeze on some fresh lemon juice and/or sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese.
