      So easy to make and delicious! I accidentally ate 3/4 of this in one sitting. Oops. Oh, and as a recommendation, extra salt might not be needed depending on how salty the prosciutto is. Prosciutto di Parma tends to be very salty so I didn’t use it and it came out perfectly.

      I made these as a side dish for a friend’s dinner party. They were yummy and looked great on the dinner plates. Since we were doing a side dish vs. an appetizer, I upped the asparagus to 8 per bundle and created 5 or 6 bundles to a pan. We popped them in the oven when we arrived at the host’s house and they were ready just in time for dinner. A great, tasty and EASY dish that you can serve as an appetizer or side dish – whatever suits your needs!
