Delicious Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Goat Cheese

Like most of my favorite party appetizers and side dishes, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus can be made a day ahead, so you have more time to concentrate on tidying and prepping before your guests arrive.

It’s a simple 3 step process. Cook asparagus, cool asparagus and wrap asparagus.

A Few Tips for Perfectly Rolled Asparagus

When cooking the asparagus, make sure to sprinkle your garlic powder just as your asparagus is nicely browned and toss in the pan for only about 30 seconds, then remove from heat.

If you add the garlic powder too soon, it will just over-cook and burn in the pan. 

The rolling process is a little time consuming, but so worth it! Simply cut your prosciutto into 4ths with kitchen scissors, add a nice dollop of goat cheese and roll.

I love serving prosciutto-wrapped asparagus on a marble slate with deviled eggs. They just look so, so pretty together.
