    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    My husband clipped this recipe from a magazine about 7 years ago, which is something he had never done before. When he brought it home, I agreed to make it for him, and it was great. Since then, I have served it as a first course at many holiday meals. You can also serve it as an hors d'oeuvres.

      I loved eating this and enjoyed making these up. I steamed the asparagus for 15 minutes in my turbo cooker. While they were cooling on papertowels I had 3 oz of prosciutto ham, cut it in 4 lengthwise strips to wrap the asparagus. The parmesan cheese was a little messy, but it really was fun to make. Cooked in the oven for 12 minutes. My Dad was visiting me and he must have enjoyed too, I think he had 3 helpings! This will be made again. Thanks, JackieOhNo! for posting this recipe.

      Three of my favorite ingredients- asparagus, prosciutto, and parm, are in this recipe, so what's not to like? The ham crisps up nicely, giving some crunch, while the cheese helps it adhere to the asparagus. I wouldn't serve this with a very salty main dish, but otherwise, outstanding! I cheated a bit and precooked the asparagus in the microwave instead of boiling; but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I'll definitely make this again!

      This is the 3rd time I have made these little lovlies! I bundle 6 asparagus spears and then wrap each bundle with the proscuitto. Perfect serving sized bundles :) I only steam them for a couple of minutes before putting them in to the oven as we prefer them on the slightly crisp side. When I served these for one of the many Christmas dinners I made both ladies asked for the recipe. My favorite way of doing asparagus now!
