Proscuitto Wrapped Asparagus Spears

My mom made these for me a year or two ago and it was the first time I willingly ate asparagus... now we make them all the time and LOVE them. They are super easy, fast, and delish!! Enjoy!


25-30 asparagus spears
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 tbsp. garlic seasoning (I use Garlic Garlic)
8 slices prosciutto


Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

To trim asparagus, hold one end in each hand. Bend the spear and allow it to snap, discard the base.

To prepare bundles, lay out two sheets of prosciutto and allow them to slightly overlap. Spread one spoonful of cream cheese mixture across the procuitto. Top with 6-8 asparagus spears. Roll up and set aside.

Cook for 7-10 minutes, turning once. Allow the prosciutto to crisp up on all sides. Serve immediately.

*If you want a little something extra... drizzle each bundle with a little good-quality balsamic vinegar... it's heavenly!
