Asparagus is at its peak flavor in the spring. And it’s even tastier when wrapped in delicately sweet and salty prosciutto and topped with savory Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. This easy-to-make recipe is perfect for an appetizer or side dish. Not only is it packed with flavor, but it’s also full of vitamins A and C, phosphorus and calcium for strong teeth and gums.
