If you are firing up the grill, and if you like asparagus, then you must try this grilled asparagus wrapped with prosciutto recipe.
I’m not sure how I came up with this recipe. I probably saw it in a cookbook, but I can’t be sure. But this one is a winner. You can serve it as a side dish, or it would make a fantastic appetizer. And it’s just as good as a left-over the next day.

Here’s how to make this dish:
I use a disposable pan that I buy from the Dollar Tree (the one where everything is $1.) Even though this pan only costs $1, I wash it and reuse it several times. This one has been used about 4 times already!
When the prosciutto starts to brown slightly and get a little crinkly, then it’s time to remove it from the grill.
Grilled Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto
- 1 pound fresh asparagus
- 1 package prosciutto
- 1 small wedge Parmesan cheese shredded
Spray a disposable grill pan that has holes in it with cooking spray.
Place disposable grill pan down inside a jellyroll pan or on a cookie sheet (for stability while transporting to grill.)
Wash and snap off the ends of the asparagus at the place where they naturally break.
Tear each slice of prosciutto in half and wrap around each asparagus spear.
Place wrapped spears on the disposable pan and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese.
Grill on high for about 5 minutes or until the prosciutto turns brown and crinkly.
This recipe could easily be cooked in a 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes instead of on a grill.
