Those who don't like asparagus generally first encountered it steamed, which is a technique that highlights the bitterness rather than the sweetness of this delicious spring vegetable. This recipe calls for instead roasting the asparagus and wrapping it in prosciutto for an extra-savory touch.
When preparing asparagus, it's important to trim off the woody ends. Some would use a knife for this task, but in reality, the asparagus lets the cook know where the break should be. Simply hold the spear in one hand and the end in the other, and bend gently. Wherever the asparagus breaks naturally is where the end should be trimmed.
