Parchment paper
1 1/2 lbs. fresh asparagus spears
1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. olive oil, divided
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 oz. prosciutto (about 4 thin slices)
Lemon wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Break off the tough ends of the asparagus and discard. Arrange the asparagus in one layer on the baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned but still crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the prosciutto slices to the skillet. Cook the slices for 2 minutes per side, until crispy. Remove the prosciutto from the skillet and coarsely chop.
  3. Add the asparagus to a flat platter. Top the asparagus with the prosciutto and garnish with lemon wedges.
