  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the prosciutto, garlic, and pine nuts in the melted butter until the garlic is fragrant and the nuts begin to turn brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice.
  2. Bring a pot filled with lightly salted water to boil. Gently boil the asparagus until the bright green and barely tender, about 3 minutes; drain. Add the asparagus to the prosciutto mixture and toss to mix evenly. Season with salt and pepper; serve hot.

Yummy! I adjusted the servings for 3 and it was enough for my husband and I. I only used 1 tablespoon of butter, cut back on the garlic and chopped the asparagus into bite size bits. I mixed it ...

Love everything that goes into this dish, but for me the lemon juice was overpowering. Next time I will squeeze half a lemon over everything, instead of using 1/3 cup of juice. Totally lost th...
