Prosciutto wrapped asparagus

This is a great appetizer or side dish that's easy and elegant for any meal. I made this for my Sauvignon Blanc Wine & Dine event and it pairs nicely with the crispness of the wine.

Prosciutto wrapped asparagus
1 pkg italian proscuitto
2 lbs fresh asparagus

Blanch asparagus in hot water for 1-2 minutes.

Remove asparagus from hot water and place in a bowl of ice cold water, with ice.

Remove asparagus from water and pat dry.

Cut package of proscuitto in half.

Roll half a slice of proscuitto around one stalk of asparagus.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Place proscuitto wrapped asparagus in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Place asparagus in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes or until proscuitto is slighty crisp.
