Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

20 minutes
Calories 190kcal


  • 1 bunch asparagus (about 1 pound)
  • 4 ounces prosciutto
  • 1 cup cheese (about 1 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon oil (about 1 pound)
  • 1 pinch salt (about 1 pound)


  • Preheat your broiler while preparing the asparagus.
  • Bend the asparagus lightly; they should naturally snap to separate the woody end of the stems from the tasty side.
  • Discard the woody ends, and lightly grease a rimmed baking tray.
  • Cut the prosciutto strips in half lengthwise.
  • In groups of two or three asparagus stalks, gently wrap the prosciutto diagonally around your asparagus spears, leaving just the tips showing.
  • Be gentle to not tear the prosciutto, though if it does tear just do your best to continue wrapping gently.
  • Place each wrapped bundle on the baking tray, being careful not to overlap them.
  • Season with pepper and salt to taste, then place the baking tray on an oven rack about four inches above the broiler, watching carefully.
  • As soon as the prosciutto crisps (about two minutes), flip the bundles to crisp the other side, usually only a minute or two longer.
