Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus

/

Even though I knew that Tom and C won't eat asparagus and I wasn't sure if my cousin or her boyfriend would either, I really wanted to make this appetizer. I haven't had prosciutto in forever! Almost every time I visit my aunt at her beach house in Delaware, she'll have honeydew melon slices wrapped in prosciutto as an appetizer before dinner. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

Ingredients:
    • 1 lb. asparagus, washed and woody ends trimmed off
    • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
    • 10-15 slices prosciutto
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 450. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Spread a small amount of the cream cheese onto each slice of prosciutto. Place the asparagus stalk at the top of the prosciutto slice and roll up until the end of the slice.
3. Repeat with each slice and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until the prosciutto is slightly crispy and the asparagus is tender.

I was expecting this to have a bit more flavor than it did. I think next time I'll use a flavored cream cheese, maybe a veggie one or something to add a little more kick to this.
