Servings: 6 servings


  • 1 lb. asparagus
  • ½ lb. prosciutto thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. oil olive or avocado
  • ⅛ - ¼ tsp. salt to taste
  • tsp. black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Wrap 2-3 medium-sized asparagus spears in 1 piece of prosciutto. If you have larger asparagus, wrap 1 piece of prosciutto around 1 asparagus. You should end up with roughly 12 bundles.
  • Place a wire rack on a large baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil and then spray the rack with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add the asparagus bundles to the rack in a single layer, trying not to let any of the sides touch.
  • Whisk together the oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and then brush over the bundles.
  • Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. You’ll know they’re done cooking when the asparagus turns bright green and is fork tender.
  • Serve immediately with additional salt and black pepper, to taste. Enjoy!



For the Air Fryer: Preheat to 380 degrees for at least 3 minutes. Cook prosciutto wrapped asparagus for 6-7 minutes or until asparagus is bright green and tender.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Asparagus stems may be trimmed ahead, up to 3 days in advance. Uncooked asparagus should be kept upright in the fridge, with the stem ends submerged in an inch or two of fresh, cold water.
  • To Store: Prosciutto wrapped asparagus can be stored in an airtight Ziploc bag or other container in the fridge, for up to 3-5 days.
  • To Freeze: It is not recommended to freeze prosciutto wrapped asparagus once cooked - asparagus will freeze just fine, but the taste and texture of the delicate prosciutto may be negatively affected.
  • To Reheat: Leftover asparagus bundles may be reheated in a 400°F oven or toaster oven, just until heated through and slightly starting to crisp up again.
