Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 24 medium asparagus spears, snapped
  • 8 sheet very thinly sliced prosciutto, cut in thirds lengthwise
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon each Kosher salt and black pepper
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
Instructions
  1. Make vinaigrette by whisking garlic, vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper in a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup. Slowly whisk in oil until you reach the 1-cup mark.
  2. Drizzle asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Working one spear at a time, roll each one in a piece of prosciutto.

  5. Arrange spears on each plate and drizzle with balsamic vinegar or vinaigrette. Serve immediately.

    So, you tried 3 recipes and you liked the last one the best. As the Kitchen Goddness (Julia) says “It is the way I wanted it :-). I need get some Posciutto and make this!
    Wooden Spoon update???

    I am going to trying this yummy looking recipe but I don’t have access to a grill. Roast at 400 F or broil? Turning halfway through cooking. What do you think? Thanks in advance! :O)

      I think I might lightly oil a large skillet, and saute the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus spears over medium-high heat.

    Had these last night and they were DELICIOUS!!! My family raved over them and wanted more!! I should have made double! Thank you!

    I bought ingredients to make this tonight but my asparagus is very skinny…should I just roll up the fattest of the bunch (still skinny though) or can I do bundles of a few skinny ones?

    Thank you! I actually got in a pinch and just threw the asparagus and prosciutto (torn into pieces) into a grill basket and drizzled the vinaigrette on it before serving. It wasn’t as pretty but my family LOVED it! Delicious!

    Trying to get finicky eaters to eat anything green is challenging…so asparagus was never a hit with the kids. I thought I had nothing to lose and made this two nights ago and my kids ate them. I was surprised, but to them just tasted the “crunchiness” and not the asparagus. Thanks!

    Question? I am making these for Thanksgiving, could I broil them instead? or fry them? I don’t want to be using my grill now that it’s cold out.

    Our daughter made this for Christmas and they were an incredible hit! Thanks, I will definitely serve these in the future.

    Try this recipe. Simple and always a hit. All u need is asparagus, cream cheese, and prosciutto. I cut my asparagus in half, as well as prosciutto slices, spread with cream cheese and take the 2 halves of asparagus,then wrap in the prosciutto. Depending on your oven I bake at 425 for 20 minutes. I like my prosciutto crisp :)
