Rolled Baked Asparagus with Prosciutto
(Involtini di Asparagi con Prosciutto Cotto)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 and 1/2 pounds asparagus
8 slices cooked prosciutto
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
2 tablespoons butter
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 350F (175C).

Butter an 11 by 7-inch baking dish.

Cut off tough asparagus ends.

Using a sharp knife or potato peeler, peel outer skin from asparagus.

Tie asparagus together in 1 or 2 bunches with string or rubber bands.

Pour cold salted water 2 to 3 inches deep in an asparagus cooker, tall stockpot or old coffeepot.

Place asparagus upright in water.

Bring water to a boil.

Cover and cook over high heat 6 to 8 minutes, depending on size.

Drain on paper towels; remove string or rubber bands.

Divide asparagus into 4 bundles.

Wrap 2 slices ham around each bundle.

Arrange wrapped asparagus bundles in buttered baking dish in a single layer.

Sprinkle with Parmigiano cheese and dot with butter.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Makes 4 servings.
