Baked Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto

Total Time

Cook 10 mins

I found this recipe on the internet. I love asparagus and this has become my favorite recipe when making it!


  1. Preheat an oven to 400°F.
  2. Butter a baking dish large enough to hold the asparagus.
  3. Bring a sauce pan 3/4 full of water to a boil.
  4. Add the asparagus and salt and cook until the spears are just beginning to bend when lifted by the stem, 5-7 minutes.
  5. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.
  6. Wrap each asparagus spear in one slice of prosciutto and place in the baking dish.
  7. Dot with the butter and sprinkle with the cheese and pepper.
  8. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
  9. Serve hot directly from the dish.

Oh the farm loved this! Sincerely a wonderful taste, so good I should of made more the I did. I served this as part of a Holiday Brunch, and guests came to grab the asparagus before taking anything else! It was so pretty, and made a lovely presentation. Thanks for posting such a nice recipe, one that will remain terrific throughout the years.

Very very good. Served this many times with either chicken marsala, seafood ravioli with alfredo sauce, mac & cheese, spaghetti bolognese. Always a hit! Thanks for sharing.
