Grilled Asparagus With Prosciutto
I love almost any vegetable cooked on the grill, and asparagus is one vegetable that is delicious grilled lightly brown and just tender to the bite. This is a very easy recipe that can be put together and coked in minutes once your grill is already hot.
Usually I prefer to choose very thin asparagus spears, but in this recipe, because they are wrapped in prosciutto, it is better to choose spears that are at least 1/2 inch or more thick.

1 Pound Asparagus Spears
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
1/4 Pound Thinly Sliced Prosciutto (Approximately)
Wash and dry the asparagus, and then cut off the tough end of the asparagus spear. Lightly toss the spears with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cut each prosciutto slice into three lengthwise slices. Wrap one slice of prosciutto around the center of each spear, pressing it to stick.
Cook on the grill over medium low heat until the spears are tender, about 5 to 7 minutes, turning frequently. serve warm or at room temperature.
