- 12 spears asparagus
- 12 slices Prosciutto di Parma
In a medium pot over heat, boil water. Add asparagus and cook for 2 minutes. Immediately transfer asparagus to a bowl of ice water to keep its color. Let sit for 2 minutes, and then transfer to a paper-towel lined plate.
Make sure asparagus is completely dry. Wrap each spear with a slice of prosciutto. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
