Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus
Ingredients
24
asparagus spears (1 to 1-1/4 pounds), trimmed to 6-inch lengths
24
thin slices provolone cheese (12 to 14 ounces)
12
very thin slices prosciutto (8 to 10 ounces), halved lengthwise
 
Cracked black pepper
1
tablespoons olive oil
1
tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Directions
  1. Place a steamer basket in a large skillet. Add enough water to come just below bottom of basket. Bring to boiling. Place asparagus in basket. Reduce heat to medium-low. Steam, covered, for 4 minutes. Remove asparagus from basket; immerse in ice water to cool quickly. Drain asparagus; pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Wrap a slice of cheese and a half-slice of prosciutto around each asparagus spear. Arrange wrapped asparagus on a serving plate. If desired, cover and chill for up to 24 hours.
  3. Before serving, sprinkle with cracked pepper. Drizzle with oil and balsamic vinegar. Makes 8 servings.
