  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (ReaLemon ®)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

    Line a baking sheet with foil. Cut prosciutto slices lengthwise into two thin strips.

    Gather two to three asparagus spears and carefully tie prosciutto into a knot around asparagus bundle. Continue until all ingredients are used and place asparagus bundles on prepared baking sheet.

    In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and lemon juice.

    Drizzle over asparagus. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
