  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Cut the puff pastry and sliced prosciutto into strips about 1/2 inch thick. Wash and trim the asparagus of any woody stems (about the bottom inch or so).
  2. Wrap the individual stalks of asparagus with prosciutto, then twist the puff pastry around both. Arrange the wrapped asparagus onto a greased baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, melt the butter and whisk in the garlic powder, parsley, and salt to taste. Brush each asparagus stalk with the butter. Pop the sheet into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown. Serve warm or chilled along with marinara or ranch for dipping. Enjoy!
