Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus

(This is another OLD RECIPE that I brought back to share and update the photos.  I even added it in the recipe box for easy saving and printing.  This was my 2nd recipe that I ever made for A Zesty Bite.  Hope you enjoy this prosciutto wrapped asparagus as it is an old favorite recipe.)

Tonight, I decided to make a side dish to go with the left over salmon.  I made prosciutto wrapped asparagus my way.  There are a ton of recipes out there for this dish that include all different types of ingredients.  I decided to add a cheese spread to the prosciutto to add some more zest.

Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus
You can use any type of cheese or spread that appeals to your particular tastes.  The brand that I chose was the laughing cow cheese spread (garlic and herb) that comes in small triangle packages.  Another suggestion I have is to use the salt sparingly because the prosciutto is naturally salty.

    There probably weren’t much leftovers despite how much you made.
