Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Serves 4
Time 15 min
These asparagus bundles make an excellent starter or side for a celebratory meal, but they are simple enough for weeknights, too. Brush the prosciutto with a bit of Dijon mustard for extra tanginess, if you like. Watch our how-to video.
Ingredients
  • 24 asparagus spears trimmed
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • Ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1 lemon quartered
Method

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Cover asparagus with water in a large, deep skillet and bring to a boil. Cook just until tender, 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer asparagus to a bowl of ice water until chilled to stop the cooking; drain well.

Divide asparagus into 4 piles, wrapping each with a slice of prosciutto around the center to form a bundle. Transfer to a baking sheet, season with pepper and sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Roast until cheese is golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to plates and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
