What's cookin' good lookin'?

Asparagus wrapped in prosciutto is one of those finger food that is always a party pleaser! 

-buy prosciutto from the deli (imported is best!) and have them slice it THIN so that its almost falling apart.
-cut the woody ends off asparagus and then blanch the asparagus for 2 min.
*blanch- rolling boil water, add asparagus, cook 2-3 min, strain and put in ice water bath immediately, strain again
-after the asparagus is done, roll prosciutto on the center of the stock, line them up on a baking sheet lined with tin foil 
-sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese 
-broil on top wrak of the oven until it just starts to crisp on the edges, usually only takes a few min. 
-serve at room temp

This dish can be prepared up to a day before serving. Simply cover with a damp paper towel and wrap in plastic wrap.
