This is one of the best asparagus recipes I have ever used, and I LOVE asparagus. The only change I made was to add garlic into the oil with the prosciutto, and then again with the asparagus. I also used some leftover chicken stock I had around instead of the water. YUM

This was absolutely scrumptious. The lemon really brought out the flavor of the asparagus. The texture was perfect, crisp, but cooked. I used pancetta because I had some left over from another recipe. The result was perfection! Another superb Chef John recipe!
