Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto



These are simple to make and taste delicious too!  This makes an impressive looking side dish or appetizer and it only requires a few ingredients.   Asparagus is packed with healthy nutrients and is low carb too.  These can be made up ahead of time and then put in the oven at the last minute. 



All that is needed to make this is fresh asparagus, prosciutto, parmesan cheese, and olive oil.

Rinse and trim off  the tough ends of the asparagus. Slice the prosciutto slices in half the long way. Wrap each spear with a slice of prosciutto.  Place on a prepared baking sheet.  Sprinkle evenly with parmesan cheese.  Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
