This can be elegant or you can eat it with your fingers. It includes a sauce that is reminiscent of deviled eggs.

  1. Snap woody ends off asparagus spears.
  2. In a large frying pan, bring 3/4 cup water to boil. Add salt and trimmed asparagus, cover, and cook until asparagus is tender, about 4 minutes. Drain, dry and let cool.
  3. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, chopped egg, parsley, lemon juice, mustard, lemon zest, and pepper. Add salt to taste.
  4. Lay 4 asparagus spears on each piece of prosciutto and roll up. Repeat to form 4 bundles. Serve with sauce.

I so enjoy both asparagus and prosciutto and together, well, it's bound to be a hit. Taking my cue from bobo I went light on the lemon and found that half was just right for me. Thanks, cookiedog, for a special "just for me treat".

I'm a huge fan of asparagus and prosciutto together, but the sauce really takes this to the next level! We loved the lemony tang of the sauce, and it was a great compliment to the prosciutto. Excellent side dish. Thanks Cookiedog!
