Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus


3 dozen asparagus spears
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
9 thin slices prosciutto
12 wooden or metal skewers


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Trim the asparagus, arrange in rows of 6 spears, and poke two skewers perpendicularly through the rows. (The result will look like a raft.) Mix olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper. Place asparagus on a broiler pan and drizzle with olive oil mixture. Roast, turning two or three times, until tender. Remove from heat. Wrap 4 spears in a slice of prosciutto and serve.


Makes 9 appetizers.
