Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus are an easy appetizer or side dish that uses just a few ingredients. This simple yet impressive recipe is perfect year round for a holiday meal, special occasion, or just to fancy up your weeknight! It can even be made in advance to make your life easier.


  • 6 ounces sliced Prosciutto
  • 1 pound Asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese, optional
  • Lemon Zest, optional


  1. Preheat Oven. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare Ingredients. Trim the tough ends off of the asparagus. Take the prosciutto slices and cut in half horizontally so you have long strips to wrap.
  3. Wrap Asparagus. Wrap each asparagus tightly with a piece of prosciutto. Place on the prepared baking sheet with a little room between each one. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper.
  4. Bake. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until the asparagus are bright green, tender yet firm, and can be pierced easily with a fork.
  5. Finish and Serve. Sprinkle with parmesan and lemon zest, if using. Serve and enjoy!


The asparagus can be wrapped up to a day in advance, stored in the fridge, and then baked right before serving.
