How to make the best Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto


Whether it's celebrating spring or enjoying fall holiday parties, these prosciutto wrapped asparagus bundles are what we would call a "company" dish. 

You know what we mean, it's where you go that extra step or you buy that extra ingredient to make a dish the very best.  It's where you spend a little more time in preparation to show your family or guests how special they are to you.  
  
Asparagus wrapped in prosciutto is not only gorgeous and will be very welcome on your spring table but during fall get-to-gathers or winter holiday dinners or parties, we think it's one of our best and classiest side dishes. 





Asparagus could be a "company" dish by itself but it's easy to take it up to an even higher level by wrapping it in prosciutto. 


Tip- These pretty bundles can be prepared ahead of time and then roasted in the oven for less than 5 minutes prior to serving. 



How to make a dish the best is sometimes just a small change, it's not always a fancy sauce or an overpriced seasoning but it's spending a little extra time in the preparation.  It's showing everyone how much you care because you took the time to "classy" up a dish especially for them.    


  

Roasted Asparagus bundled in Prosciutto


Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds of fresh asparagus spears, woody ends cut off

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, drop in asparagus and blanch for 4 minutes. Remove the asparagus from the boiling water and place in an ice cold water bath to stop the cooking process

4. Drizzle the bundles with olive oil and season with granulated garlic, salt, and pepper.
5. Bake for 4-5 minutes until the prosciutto and asparagus is hot but the prosciutto is not tough

  1. The guys in my family are absolutely addicted to prosciuto-wrapped asparagus, but we usually split the prosciuto and wrap each spear individually, then grill them with whatever seasonings, etc. Yummmmm! [#TastyTuesdays]
