May 12, 2013 · Print This Article
16 spears asparagus, (about 1 bunch), trimmed
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 very thin slices prosciutto, (about 1 ounce), cut in half lengthwise
Preheat grill to a medium temperature.
In a bowl, add the asparagus, oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
Wrap 4 asparagus spears around the middle with 1 length of prosciutto.
Repeat, making 4 bundles of wrapped asparagus.
Lightly oil the grill to ensure veggies do not stick.
Grill the asparagus bundles for about 10 minutes, turning twice during cooking to keep from burning.
Note: You may also cook these in the oven, on a parchment-lined or buttered baking dish, at 400F until done.
