So this is the easiest, most impressive, and most importantly most delicious appetizer I have ever come across! I heard about it from word of mouth and was intrigued! While researching, I came across quite a few variations but decided to go with this gem here…

Starting at the end, wrap each stock of asparagus with a piece of prosciutto and then form a line up on the baking sheet (because these little morsels are to delicious it must be a crime… haha get it… okay laying off the wine now).

Roast at 400 for 15 minutes or until the asparagus is tender.

Sprinkle with a bit of parmesan cheese and serve warm or at room temperature!
