Asparagus and Proscuitto

Mission:  The homeowners gave me these two ingredients to whip up for an appetizer. 

They invited friends over for their last night in town and invited us to join them, so I checked out my favorite website (www.epicurious.com) and found a great recipe.  I tweaked the recipe a bit and wrapped the proscuitto around the asparagus and roasted at 450 degrees for 8 minutes (brushed with olive oil).  The asparagus was really thick, so if you use thinner asparagus, reduce the cooking time.  Beautiful appetizer!

Next time I make this appetizer, I'll throw in some coarse ground mustard and a shot of hot sauce to kick up the cheese sauce.

Hope everyone's 2011 is going well!  This will be a big year full of new adventures and good changes!
