Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto
Serves 4 to 6.
Note: From the Los Angeles Times.
• 1 lb. asparagus, medium thickness (about 16 spears)
• 1/2 lb. prosciutto, sliced medium-thin, about 16 slices from the smaller end
• 1 tbsp. olive oil
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Cut off bottom 1 to 1 1/2 inches of asparagus spears and, if the spears are thick, peel them. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each spear spiraling upward, with the fatty stripe of the ham at the bottom so it creates a barber pole effect up the spear.
Line a jellyroll pan with aluminum foil and smear it lightly with the olive oil. Arrange wrapped spears in the pan and place in the oven. After 5 minutes, shake pan vigorously to turn the spears. Roast another 5 minutes and shake again. Roast until asparagus is very tender and prosciutto is somewhat crisp, about 15 minutes total. Serve immediately.
