4 ounces whipped gf cream cheese 24 asparagus spears, cut to 3" from tip of spear and blanched 1 clove of roasted garlic Pinch of fresh ground pepper 12 slices of proscuitto, cut in half crosswise
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic and pepper. Mix well. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread cream cheese mixture on each slice of proscuitto. Wrap a proscuitto slice around the center of two asparagus spears. The cream cheese mixture will allow the proscuitto to stick to itself nicely. Place each bundle on a baking sheet and bake for 4 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately.
For the best presentation, select small to medium spears.
To roast garlic: Cut about 1/4" off the top of a head of garlic to expose the cloves. Rub head all over with olive oil and wrap in foil. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.
