Grilled Prosciutto Asparagus
After tasting an asparagus appetizer at a lovely restaurant, I created my version of it to enjoy at home.
- 1/2 pound thinly sliced prosciutto
- 1 (4 ounce) loh fresh goat cheese
- 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed

Preheat grill to medium heat.
Cut prosciutto slices in half; spread with cheese. Wrap a prosciutto piece around each asparagus spear; secure ends with toothpicks.
Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until prosciutto is crisp, turning once. Discard toothpicks.
