Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus is a thing of beauty. You get the good feelings of eating healthy, green asparagus, plus you get the salty satisfaction of crunchy prosciutto.
Asparagus can be an acquired taste, but anything with a side of cured pork is yummy.
Prosciutto can be purchased pre-sliced or you can get it sliced by your local butcher. Not all prosciutto tastes the same. Different brands taste different even if they were cured for the same amount of time. We suggest you try different brands to see which one you like the best. (We have purchased ours from Costco as well as from the deli at Safeway.)
If you aren’t a fan of prosciutto but you like bacon, you can use that instead. It is has its own merits that we will discuss in a future post.
