Second, I must be in an entertaining state of mind as I am thinking of and reading about appetizer ideas. This is another easy and elegant idea. My favorite way of serving asparagus is to roast it with some extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. It takes on a nutty and rich flavor and is so delicious. When I read this recipe, it jumped right into my appetizer file because it sounds so good. I can't wait to try it. I think you can blanch these and wrap ahead of time. When you are ready to serve, just place the baking sheet in the oven so they will be fresh for your guests.
Asparagus Rolls with Prosciutto
Trim 2 bunches of asparagus. Cook 3 minutes in boiling water. Take out of the hot water and place in a bowl filled with ice water. Remove from water and let dry.
Sprinkle dry asparagus with 2 tsp of olive oil and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp black pepper.
Cut slices of prosciutto in half lengthwise (about a half pound).
Roll up 2 asparagus spears in a prosciutto half and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with all asparagus and prosciutto.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes and serve.
