This is a great appetizer dish or if you want a main dish. To make it wash and trim asparagus. In a large pot heat up water until it is boiling, add asparagus and turn the heat off. Let asparagus cook in hot water for about 1.5 minutes (or a bit more depending on thickness). Take asparagus out and submerge into a large bowl filled with iced water. This is called blanching. Next wrap prosciutto around asparagus.
