We love Asparagus in this house, and one night after eating some my husband proclaimed “I’m going to have asparagus pee tonight” which we then in turn had to explain to my curious 10 year old. So now, every time we eat asparagus, we get to hear about how his pee smelled *le sigh* having boys is wonderful! My apologies for talking about pee with my food, but there it is.
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
What you need:
- 1 pound asparagus, trimmed from fibrous end
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- thin sliced prosciutto, halved lengthwise
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese
What you do:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Snap the fibrous stem ends off of each asparagus and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss. Roast in the oven until the asparagus is tender, about 10 minutes. Cool completely.
Wrap each asparagus with 1 piece of prosciutto, leaving the tips exposed. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan and serve.
