Prosciutto Asparagus Spears Recipe

Mmmm anyone else adore a good prosciutto wrapped asparagus appetizer? I know I sure do! Prosciutto wrapped anything is mighty tasty. Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham and there are many prosciutto wrapped recipes (mostly for dates and asparagus), but for me, the winner is asparagus. The mix of the two is simply delicious.

There are probably a bazillion different recipes for prosciutto wrapped asparagus – the simplest being… prosciutto and asparagus. The differences are in the seasonings, although I have also seen cheese, apples, and phyllo dough recipes. I have seen Prosciutto Asparagus Spears recipes for grilled, boiled, baked, blanched, and steamed asparagus. But for me, this recipe for Prosciutto Asparagus Spears is about as easy as it gets while adding just a touch of extra seasoning.

I hope you enjoy!
