(I did a pound of asparagus and instead of wrapping each asparagus individually, I wrapped a few together at a time, as I didn’t have enough prosciutto)

1.Cut 2 cm off the end of washed asparagus spears.

2.Cut prosciutto strips into two halves, going lengthways, so you end up with 12 strips. (I left the prosciutto whole and wrapped it around a few asparagus)

3.Place a prosciutto strip on a chopping board at a 45 degree angle. Place one of the asparagus spears on top of the meat, perpendicular to it. The tip of the asparagus should be lined up with the bottom of the prosciutto strip.

Wrap the bottom end of prosciutto over the asparagus and holding the meat tight, start rolling the asparagus up. The prosciutto strip will wrap around the few asparagus spears. Don’t worry if parts of the asparagus spears are not covered completely.
