Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I was looking for a different way to serve one of my favorite vegetables and this is it! Provolone cheese provides a mild flavor, but if you'd like a stronger flavor, use smoked Cheddar cheese."

  1. Fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and briefly cook uncovered until just beginning to soften, about 1 minute. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Bunch the spears into groups of 5. Place a slice of provolone cheese over the top of each bunch. Wrap a slice of prosciutto, starting at the base of the spears, around the spear-cheese package and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Place each wrapped asparagus bunch on the grill.
  5. Grill until prosciutto is crispy and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You could also cook in the oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
