Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto

Prosciutto Asparagus Hometown Provisions

Yield 6 Servings
Ingredients
1 pound asparagus (about 19 stalks), trimmed
1 tablespoon olive oil (992055)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper (991861/CQP065)
6 to 8 paper-thin slices prosciutto, halved lengthwise (110050)
1 ounce Romano cheese (775575)

Method
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Snap the dry stem ends off of each asparagus and place on a heavy baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss. Roast until the asparagus is tender, about 10 minutes. Cool completely.

Wrap each asparagus with 1 piece (about 1/2 a slice) of prosciutto, exposing tips. Arrange on a platter, grate Romano over asparagus and serve at room temperature.
