Prosciutto - Wrapped Asparagus

Asparagus is high in folic acid, which provides a myriad of benefits when consumed.  So we should all be eating lots of it all the time.  Prosciutto is also one of my favorite things to eat, so put them together and you have delicious art.  On a scale of like it or love it, Gianna said that she loved it.

Pardon my brevity as I am trying to sell my house, get ready for school to start, and find some down time for myself.  More extensive posts to follow, I'm sure...

  • 1 Bunch of asparagus
  • 8 oz. Prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • Canola oil spray
  1. Wash and trim the asparagus, breaking the ends off at the snapping point.
  2. Dry between 2 paper towels.
  3. Wrap the slices of prosciutto around each stem.  You'll use anywhere from half a slice to an entire slice.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a pan with aluminum foil.  Lay each stem on top, drizzle with  canola oil spray, and cook for 10 minutes.
