I loved eating this and enjoyed making these up. I steamed the asparagus for 15 minutes in my turbo cooker. While they were cooling on papertowels I had 3 oz of prosciutto ham, cut it in 4 lengthwise strips to wrap the asparagus. The parmesan cheese was a little messy, but it really was fun to make. Cooked in the oven for 12 minutes. My Dad was visiting me and he must have enjoyed too, I think he had 3 helpings! This will be made again. Thanks, JackieOhNo! for posting this recipe.
Three of my favorite ingredients- asparagus, prosciutto, and parm, are in this recipe, so what's not to like? The ham crisps up nicely, giving some crunch, while the cheese helps it adhere to the asparagus. I wouldn't serve this with a very salty main dish, but otherwise, outstanding! I cheated a bit and precooked the asparagus in the microwave instead of boiling; but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I'll definitely make this again!
This is the 3rd time I have made these little lovlies! I bundle 6 asparagus spears and then wrap each bundle with the proscuitto. Perfect serving sized bundles :) I only steam them for a couple of minutes before putting them in to the oven as we prefer them on the slightly crisp side. When I served these for one of the many Christmas dinners I made both ladies asked for the recipe. My favorite way of doing asparagus now!
I have made these before. They are easy and quick. Great for leftover veggies. Made with leftover Pacific Northwest Stir-Fried Asparagus & Sugar Snap Peas cut back on the cheese to just a very light sprinkle.
Wonderful ! these taste brilliant! the one and only change I made was to bunch my asparagus spears into three's since I didn't have enough prosciutto to wrap them individually. The cheese on the inside of the prosciutto melted and held them together well, so serving them wasn't a probem. Please see my rating System: 4 wonderful stars or a very tasty recipe indeed. Made for Zaar World Tour 2008. Thanks!
My husband and kids loved this recipe. I will certainly make it again but will serve it as an appetizer and not as a side. The flavor is unreal and this is super easy to make. My 12 year old helped me wrap and my 5 year old sprinkled the cheese.
