Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

I know this isn't much of a post, but I just had to get something new on here! I've been on vacation to Philadelphia the last week and ran out of time to take pictures and post new recipes before I left! I spent a couple days in Philly, I did some shopping and ate out a lot. The last three days of my vacation I went to the Jersey Shore, it was beautiful and sunny, I think I even got some color (even though I wear 50 SPF). I decided that I need to be wealthy so I can vacation for a living, LOL.
Ok, now on to the food...I was trying to think of a yummy, but easy appetizer for a dinner party and walked into the most delicious looking asparagus at the store, so I though why not do that with some prosciutto? All you have to do is blanch the asparagus for a few minutes in salted boiling water until they are barely tender, then shock in an ice bath to cool. After that you roll them up in a little prosciutto blanket, and voila...appetizer!

Hi Jason,

I love the colours of the prosciutto against the green - will have to try this as an entree.

I posted re a side dish along the same lines the other day using prosciutto and green beans... yummo..

Great picture....

It sounds like you had a great vacation, even though it's all a distant memory now. Lovely recipe, quick and easy, but looks so special.
