    lilchihuahua13's Note:

    I had seen this a few times before and I thought that I would give it a try. I don't like a asparagus, but with some good prosciutto, the asparagus is excellent. Prosciutto is already pretty salty, so just to be safe, I wouldn't salt the asparagus until its on your plate. Prosciutto is basically fancy Italian bacon.

      I will preface this by saying that prosciutto and asparagus are two of my favourite foods. I also enjoy them together. However, the cooking method on this recipe killed the flavour of a very good piece of prosciutto. I did cook one bunch according to the directions, and then I decided to salvage the remaining asparagus by steaming it, then wrapping it in prosciutto and serving without cooking the prosciutto, which we much preferred. Be aware that prosciutto is not in fact "fancy Italian bacon," and is more often served uncooked, and you drastically change the flavour by cooking it (especially over cooking it). Made for PAC Fall 2008.

      I have cooked this with a slice of parmesan cheese inside, pan fried just until crisp...even under the broiler for a second...delicious!

      In a word…Success! I cut this down to 2 servings as it was just my son and me for a “brunch� today because of the hours he’s had to keep with AT and college. It’s been a bit difficult to plan the meals and he’s not a huge fan of asparagus. These were a side dish to an omelet that I make that we like. I used 1 Tbsp. of butter (personal preference) and 1 Tbsp. of olive oil and cooked over medium heat for 7 minutes on each side turning twice -- halfway through each of those times. We did add a little salt and fresh cracked black pepper on the plate as suggested. Very little. It was lovely and he who doesn’t exactly care for asparagus devoured. <> Next time I might add just a touch of garlic (minced) but this was very, very good. Will be doing this again – soon! Made for fall PAC 2008.
