Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto
We have actuallly had a Baked Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus recipe on the site for years. But lately, I find myself making it on the grill much more often. The prosciutto gets nice and crispy and you get a smokey flavor, expecially if you use charcoal. Plus, this recipe is about as easy as it gets. If you want you can top it with some shaved or grated Parmigianno-Reggiano cheese as soon as you take it off the grill, while it is still hot.
