Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto

Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


1lb. asparagus (about 19 stalks), trimmed
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 to 8 paper-thin slices of prosciutto, halved lengthwise

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.

Wrap each asparagus with one piece (about 1/2 a slice) of prosciutto, exposing tips. Arrange on a platter and serve at room temperature.

**Tips from Traci (izzysmom7), you can use ham if you are not a fan of prosciutto. Just make sure it is paper thin. I've also found that my stoneware baking sheet works best.**
