    Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

    This can be used as a side dish or it could also work great as a fancy appetizer! These are absolutely delicious!

    12 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
    1/4 pound prosciutto (the more expensive, the less salty)
    8 oz package Cream cheese, softened
    3-4 T. chopped green onion
    1-2 tsp. minced garlic

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
    Blanch asparagus for 1 minute then plunge into an icewater bath and drain WELL. Mix cream cheese, green onion, and garlic together. Spread prosciutto slices with cream cheese mixture. Wrap slices around 2 or 3 asparagus spears. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with tin foil and spraying with cooking spray. Arrange wrapped spears in a single layer on a medium baking sheet, then spray lightly with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until asparagus is tender.
