Asparagus Florentine

Recipe Ingredients:
1 lb. of fresh asparagus
8 slices of prosciutto
1/4 Cup butter, melted
1/4 Cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

Snap off tough ends of asparagus and wash asparagus well. Steam asparagus until just tender. Put in cold water to stop the asparagus from cooking. Dry lightly. Wrap one piece of prosciutto around a few asparagus and fasten with a toothpick. Pour the butter into the bottom of a baking dish. Lay a single layer of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus in the baking dish and sprinkle with cheese. Bake in 400 degree F. oven for about 8 minutes. Serves 4 to 6 people.
