Grilled Asparagus With Prosciutto

“Barbequed asparagus has a more intense flavour which combines well with the saltiness of the prosciutto.”

  • 12 asparagus spears
  • 6 slices prosciutto or ham with prosciutto
  • 2 slices provolone if desired
  • olive oil
  1. Clean asparagus, break off bottom end so only tender spear is left.
  2. If using provolone, slice each piece into thirds, slice each third in half so you have strips about 1/4 inch wide.
  3. Wrap two spears of asparagus and 2 strips of cheese if using with prosciutto.
  4. Brush with olive oil.
  5. Place on tinfoil on grill and BBQ until asparagus is tender crisp or about 5 minutes. If you are not using cheese you can place asparagus directly on the grill.
