Stalks of as broken at ends but kept long
pancetta (one piece for every piece of asparagus)
parmesan or asiago cheese
Boil water and drop asparagus in water for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and place in cold water to stop stalks from cooking. Dry off. Shred your parmesan or asiago cheese. I used asiago and it was super yummy. I just like it better. Wrap one piece of pancetta around each stalk of asparagus, with the shredded cheese going in-between the pancetta and the asparagus. Make sure the pancetta is tight and place seam side down on baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees until the pancetta is cooked (10-15 min), and it's starting to brown just a big. Serve HOT.
These are SUPER tasty. I didn't even know I liked asparagus until I tried these! The original recipe called for prosciutto, but the store was out. I grabbed the pancetta instead and was SO happy I did. It took it to a higher level!
