Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

This is so easy and elegant! A fun appetizer for parties or a simple picnic treat.
Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. sugar

Clean and remove the tough ends of the asparagus. In a small sauce pan, stir the balsamic vinegar and sugar together and simmer over medium heat until the sugar dissolves completely. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely until syrupy. Sautee the asparagus in a pan over medium heat with a tiny splash of olive oil, salt and pepper, for about 5 minutes. The asparagus should remain crisp and not over done. Remove from the pan and wrap prosciutto around the asparagus (individually or in bundles). Drizzle the balsamic reduction over the asparagus just before serving and freshly grate parmesan cheese on top.
