1 Trim off the base of the asparagus at the point where the stem turns from white to green. Bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a large skillet. Add the asparagus and salt to taste. Cook until the asparagus bend slightly when you lift them from the stem end, 4 to 8 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the asparagus. Remove the asparagus with tongs. Drain on paper towels and pat them dry.
2 Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a large baking dish.
3 Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the asparagus and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Using two spatulas, turn the asparagus carefully in the butter to coat them well.
4 Divide the asparagus into 4 groups. Place each group in the center of a slice of prosciutto. Wrap the ends of the prosciutto around the asparagus. Place the bundles in the baking dish. Sprinkle with the Parmigiano.
5 Bake the asparagus 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and forms a crust. Serve hot.
