  • 24 asparagus, medium thickness (approximately 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 12 slices prosciutto, sliced thin (6 ounces)
Bring 2 gallons of salted water to a boil in a large stock pot. Add the asparagus and cook until tender, approximately 3 minutes. Remove asparagus from water and place in ice water for 5 minutes to stop residual cooking. Remove asparagus from ice water, drain and dry.
Cut sliced prosciutto in half. Wrap each stalk with one slice prosciutto and transfer to a baking sheet or serving platter.
Store covered in refrigeration up to one day in advance. Bring to room temperature before serving.
