Something else. I'm a personal chef, & this recipe gets rave reviews. I agree with other reviewers- blanch the asparagus for 1 minute, plunge into an icewater bath, & drain. I used chive & onion soft cream cheese, and sprayed both the bottom of the pan, as well as tops of finished bundles with olive oil. Also, buy the best prosciutto that you can afford, ths helps with the saltiness factor. Elegant, & good either warm or chilled!

Altered ingredient amounts. I have a couple of comments on this recipe. I recommend using black forest ham or any other type of deli sliced ham instead of prosciutto. It stands up to the cream cheese much better and goes very nicely with the asparagus. I've made this before as a cold appetizer and it's great that way too. To do this, boil the asparagus for 1-2 minutes (depending on thickness) just until slightly softened. Immediately immerse in ice water. Drain and blot dry. Assemble as directed and refrigerate. You should boil the asparagus even for the cooked version or it will be crunchy. I found that if you boil the asparagus you should reduce the oven time to 7-8 minutes or the ham begins to get too crispy. Really good either way.

Something else. Excellent combination of flavours! Very easy to prepare. Only change I made was peeling the asparagus first. (unless they are pencil thin). Peeling the stalk to about an inch from the tip makes it so tender (removes woody toughness).

Something else. This is a quick, easy and very elegant side dish. Like a previous reviewer, I simmered the asparagus (about 3 mins) then immersed it in a bowl of ice cubes and water. They stayed beautifully green even after 12 mins in the oven. Great tip!

Altered ingredient amounts. I followed the recipe to a tee using 2 to 3 asparagus spears in a bundle, and very softened cream cheese. I also tried one asparagus spear and cream cheese w/ the prosciutto...I found that the saltiness of the prosciutto overpowered the single asparagus spear. This side dish is outstanding with asparagus bundles, however ! I would even recommend using many asparagus spears... I was disappointed because we ate all of the asparagus and didn't eat all of the prosciutto, although i LOVE it! No salt needed, it's salty enough! My advice: add more asparagus.

Phenomenal. The best asparagus recipe I have seen. Make sure to baste the bundles with olive oil so they don't dry out.
