Asparagus Bundles Asparagus Bundles

These asparagus bundles look impressive and are simple to make. They cook in just 10 minutes and pair well with grilled chicken or beef. The recipe comes from a dear friend of mine, Michelle Ellis. 

Asparagus Bundles

1 pound fresh asparagus spears
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 
Prosciutto, 8- 10 thin slices

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick foil. Break tough ends off asparagus and cut the same length. Pour olive oil and balsamic vinegar in center of prepared baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon stir the two together. 

Roll asparagus in vinegar and oil mixture; making more if needed. Move asparagus to one side. Cut prosciutto in half, lengthwise. Bundle 3 to 4 asparagus together by winding the prosciutto around the center of the stalk. 

Space bundles on baking sheet so their sides are not touching. Bake 10 minutes. Tip: If you want an Asian flavor profile, use sesame oil and unseasoned rice vinegar in place of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
