We developed a perfect asparagus recipe, including a simple sauce, that can be completed in just 10 minutes. We broiled the asparagus to concentrate the flavor and lightly caramelize its peel. While the asparagus cooked, we whisked together a simple, flavorful vinaigrette to drizzle over the hot asparagus before serving.

Mascarpone is an Italian cheese with a consistency similar to cream cheese. It can be found in the specialty cheese section of most large grocery stores. The asparagus will have to be broiled in two batches so the prosciutto can brown properly. Keep the uncooked prosciutto-wrapped asparagus in the refrigerator until they are ready to be broiled.
