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


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. Add the asparagus bundles to the rack in a single layer, trying not to let any of the sides touch.
  5. Whisk together the oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and then brush over the bundles.
  6. 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.
  7. Serve immediately with additional salt and black pepper, to taste. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

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.
