Prosciutto wrapped asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Ingredients

  • 24 stalks of asparagus
  • 12 slices of prosciutto
  • olive oil

Instructions

  1. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus. For those that have never done this before - just hold the middle and bottom end of the stalk and bend until the end snaps off. **Do NOT throw these away -- seal them in a bag and store them in your freezer to use in vegetable stock or soups later.
  2. Slice prosciutto lengthwise and wrap each asparagus stalk.
  3. Drizzle olive oil in the large skillet on medium heat. Once the oil is heated - place a layer of asparagus in the pan.
  4. Heat 2-3 minutes on each side until the prosciutto begins to brown and become crisp and the asparagus becomes slightly fork tender. (you can also broil the spears for 7-10 minutes if you prefer)
  5. Remove immediately from the pan and serve.

Recipe Notes

There is no need to add any salt to this recipe - the prosciutto provides enough flavor without any additional seasonings.
