Method

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.

Cook pasta according to directions on package. Drain and keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add onions and prosciutto and cook until onions start to brown, 7 to 10 minutes.

Add asparagus and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes longer.

Uncover and add wine, stirring to deglaze the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.

When the liquid has evaporated and the asparagus can be pierced easily with a knife, remove from heat.

Toss with drained pasta.

Add cheese and toss again.

Season with salt and pepper.
