    My wife just came up with this tonight and it turned out great!

    1 Bunch of asparagus
    1 sheet of puff pastry cut to .5" strips
    prosciutto split in half lengthwise (not sure how many slices you'll need...Just play it by ear)
    Parmesan cheese (I'm spoiled, I buy fresh blocks) Shredded.

    Preheat oven to 400*
    Blanch the asparagus

    Take bundles of 2 or 3 asparagus and wrap in a strip of prosciutto, then wrap with puff pastry.

    Place all bundles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and shred parmesan cheese all over them.

    Bake til golden brown and delicious.

    hmm, I guess nobody likes asparagus?

    I might try that with green beans. I always manage to mess up asparagus.

    I love the stuff, grilled, baked, raw. Good to know you expand beyond the smoker, there's a lot of life out there. Let me know when the blood oranges are in season, I think they're the bomb.
