Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Asparagus is one of the staples of Easter meals, and this is a slightly different way to serve it.  There are a few different ways to prepare it, I will include them both.  Either way is delicious!

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
- Bunch of fresh asparagus, trimmed
- 8 oz. prosciutto
- 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened to room temperature

To Bake:
Spread cream cheese on prosciutto slices, and wrap a few spears of asparagus in each.  Lay on a single layer in a baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.  Bake at 450 for about 15 minutes. 

To Grill:
Blanch the asparagus in boiling water for a minute or two, remove and drain.  Spread cream cheese on prosciutto and wrap a few spears in each.  Grill for 5-10 minutes, until asparagus is tender.
