Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Classic. Here the asparagus is roasted, but grilled asparagus works as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus (about 19 stalks), trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 to 8 paper-thin slices prosciutto, halved lengthwise

Tools

  • Oven, Baking Sheet

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Snap the dry stem ends off of each asparagus and place on a heavy baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss. Roast until the asparagus is tender, about 15 minutes. Cool completely.
  3. Wrap each asparagus with 1 piece (about 1/2 a slice) of prosciutto, exposing tips. Arrange on a platter and serve at room temperature.
