What else will I need to make this?
Can I make substitutions?
Yes. You can use pancetta, guanciale, or smoked bacon. Do not use canned asparagus.
1/2 pound of prosciutto
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat the over to 350º F / 175º C.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Wash the asparagus and pat dry with a paper towel.
Cut 2 inches off the bottom of the asparagus. That's the fibrous part and it is quite difficult to eat. Discard.
Put 3 asparagus together and gently wrap them with the prosciutto.
Tie with a piece of twine and place on baking tray.
Repeat the process with all.
Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cook in the oven for 15 minutes or until the prosciutto is crispy and the asparagus are semi soft.
