Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus w/ Taleggio SauceRecipe type: Starter
Number of serving: 5 servings
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Ready in: 20 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients:

1 lb asparagus, cleaned & bottoms removed
5-6 slices prosciutto
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
6-7 ounces (.4 lb) taleggio cheese
Tabasco sauce
salt
pepper
Preparation:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2: Once your asparagus are cleaned and the tough bottom of the stem has been removed lay out on a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with your olive oil, rolling the asparagus back and forth to get mostly covered. Sprinkle with just a little salt. (not to much – the prosciutto will add a lot) Take the asparagus three at a time and wrap them in a slice of prosciutto. Lay back on the foil lined pan then place in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes.

Step 3: In the meantime you can make the sauce. Melt the butter over moderate heat, add the flour slowly, whisking together. Let cook for about 3-4 minutes. It will take on a nutty aroma. Then add the milk, a little at a time and whisk until smooth.

Step 4: Let cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. While mixture is cooking, cut the cheese into small chunks. Add the cut up cheese, season with salt & pepper and a dash or two of Tabasco. Keep warm until ready to serve with asparagus. (And try not to drink it all before then!)
