Summer is about easy living. That is why any recipe for a simple appetizer, made with fresh Indgredients, is such wonderful thing to have as a go to menu option. These delicious Proscuitto Wrapped Asparagus are always a big hit and when I took them to a pool party on July 4th, they were gone quickly. They are great to take along to a party or picnic, because they travel well and can be served at room temperature.
Easy to prepare, the key indgredient is good quality proscuitto, that you allow to get just a little crisp, in a hot oven. Also, the fresh, ground pepper adds a peppery bite to the simple asparagus spears. At your next summer gathering, serve them on a pretty platter, accompanied by a crisp white wine and wait for the compliments you will receive.

Drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with fresh ground pepper. Bake at 410 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes or until proscuitto begins to get slightly crisp. Enjoy!
