1 pound fresh asparagus
1 pound thinly sliced prosciutto (imported Italian ham)

Blanch fresh asparagus for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes (until bright green).  Cool asparagus.

Pare the bottom of the asparagus spear with a peeler to remove the outer woody layer of skin.

Cut a piece of prosciutto in half lengthwise and wrap around an asparagus spear.

Continue this process with the remainder of the asparagus and prosciutto.

Place the wrapped asparagus slices on a serving dish and decorate with your favorite garnish.
