  • Pinch gray salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • Unsalted butter for greasing baking dish
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

    In 3-quart saucepan, heat 4 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt to boiling. Add asparagus. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer about 4 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.

    Butter shallow baking dish. Toss cooled asparagus with 2 tablespoons olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Divide asparagus into 4 equal bundles. On work surface, arrange 2 slices of the prosciutto so they slightly overlap each other. Top with 1 asparagus bundle and roll up carefully in prosciutto. Place in baking dish. Repeat with remaining prosciutto and asparagus. Flatten tops of bundles slightly; sprinkle with topping.
