Ingredients

  • 1 bundle asparagus
  • 6 ounces prosciutto
  • 1 Tablespoon slivered almonds
  • 1 Tablespoon Gorgonzola cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • Prep: turn on your broiler. Cut off the ends of the asparagus, wash, and dry it. Slice the prosciutto in half length-wise. Add a very light coating of olive oil to a baking sheet.
  • Wrap one piece of prosciutto around each spear, starting just under the head and wrapping in a downward spiral. Lay each spear on the baking sheet so that they are not touching each other. Place under the broiler for about 3-4 minutes, then rotate the spears and broil another 3-4 minutes until the prosciutto is crisp and the asparagus is just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • While the asparagus is cooling, add the almonds to a small dry skillet over medium heat. Toast for about 3 minutes until they just start to brown. Remove from heat.
  • Present: arrange the asparagus spears on a serving tray. Toss the toasted almonds all over the asparagus, then the Gorgonzola cheese. Serve!
