Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

These are one of my favorite appetizers - they are so full of flavor and texture, go great alone or as a side dish, and are so easy to make!

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Ingredients:
Asparagus
Cream cheese
Prosciutto (found with specialty meats in your grocery store)

Directions:
1. First, blanch your asparagus in boiling water to bring out its color. Cut off the dry ends of each spear, then boil for 1-2 minutes. Transfer the asparagus into a bowl of cold water, or run cool water over them in a colander to "shock" them - so that they cool and stop cooking.
2. Spread each slice of prosciutto with a little cream cheese. Then, wrap up 3-4 asparagus spears in the prosciutto, with the ends exposed.
3. Arrange spears on a lightly greased baking pan. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes - or until the asparagus is tender.
