Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus With Raspberry Sauce

      
        Sometime's the hardest thing about planning meals is figuring out what side dish to
        make. I heart asparagus...It is my favorite veggie. If I could find a way to incorporate
        it in every meal, I would. Wrapping Prosciutto around the asparagus gives it a salty
        bite and it's simply divine. The Raspberry Sauce gives the dish a great balance of
        sweet and salty!! YUM. These are highly addicting.

                               Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus With Raspberry Sauce

         1/3 of a pound of thinly sliced prosciutto
         16 asparagus spears, trimmed
         1/2 cup seedless jam
         2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
         olive oil
         salt and pepper
         garlic "optional"

         1) Cut prosciutto slices in half. Wrap a prosciutto piece around each asparagus spear.
          Place on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.

         2) Preheat oven to 400 and cook about ten minutes. You also can grill the asparagus.

         3) In a small microwave safe bowl, microwave jam and vinegar for 20 seconds or
         until jam is melted.

                               This dish would also be perfect as an appetizer for a party!
