This is an easy way to dress up asparagus. You can also use bacon for this recipe, but for this purpose, the thin slices of the prosciutto mean you don't have to overcook the asparagus to get the meat cooked. Serve as a side dish or as an appetizer.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds/900 g asparagus spears
  • 14-16 slices of prosciutto
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL​ olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Trim ends off tough ends from asparagus. Cut prosciutto slices into strips. Wrap half of one slice onto each asparagus spear.
  3. Combine minced garlic with olive oil and brush each spear with the mixture. The seasoned and wrapped spears with black pepper and place onto grill. Cook for 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally. Keep a close eye on these as the prosciutto is paper thin and prone to burning. Once cooked through, remove  asparagus from heat and serve.
