Delicious and healthy asparagus wrapped in prosciutto.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Wash the asparagus and pat dry.
  3. Divide into little bunches. I usually divide one bunch of asparagus into 8 or 10 smaller ones.
  4. Wrap each small bunch of asparagus in a piece of prosciutto, ham, or bacon.
  5. Place on a baking sheet or in a large baking dish.
  6. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and lemon/garlic if using.
  7. Place in oven for 10-12 minutes until prosciutto/bacon/ham is starting to get crispy and asparagus is bright green. Check to make sure asparagus is tender (not soft!).
  8. Let sit 2 minutes and serve immediately.

Notes

These cute little bundles and make a fun side dish for kids or an elegant appetizer. They can even be assembled ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator until time to cook.
