Preheat the oven to 425°F. On a large baking sheet, toss asparagus with oil, salt and pepper, and then roast until just tender, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, spread pesto onto 8 slices of bread, and then spread goat cheese onto remaining 8 slices. Top goat cheese with prosciutto and asparagus and then with pesto-covered bread. Generously spray sandwiches on both sides with olive oil. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook sandwiches, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and hot throughout, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board, cut in half and serve.
