The most delicious asparagus side dish ever, made in just 20 minutes with only 6 ingredients. Keto friendly and gluten free!


Units Scale
  • 1 lb asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 12 thin slices prosciutto
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper, fresh thyme leaves for garnish


  1. Grease a large baking sheet. Bring a large stock pot of salted water to boil. Add asparagus to boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Drain asparagus and rinse with cold water or place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Wrap 4-5 asparagus stalks in 1 slice of prosciutto*. Place on prepared baking sheet and turn oven onto broil.
  4. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Gently brush each asparagus bundle with oil mixture. Sprinkle evenly with parmesan cheese.
  5. Broil for 3-5 minutes (really depends on your oven so keep on eye on it!) until parmesan is bubbling and prosciutto starts to crisp up.
  6. Remove from heat. Garnish with pepper, fresh thyme leaves and any leftover parmesan as desired. Serve immediately.


I made bundles of 4-5 asparagus because they were quite thin. If your asparagus is on the thick side, do a bundle of around 3, but make sure to slice enough prosciutto!
