Asparagus Bundles

Asparagus Bundles
Have you ever tasted this before? I think I made this kind of dish before and I used bacon instead of prosciutto. How would you like to try making this kind of dish? This recipe is very low in cholesterol. This is great for my husband because he has high cholesterol and hypertension. Here's the recipe:

1/4cup Progresso® Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs

Pinch gray salt

Freshly ground black pepper
1tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
1tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1teaspoon salt
1large bunch (about 1 lb) fresh asparagus, trimmed to even lengths

Unsalted butter for greasing baking dish
2tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Additional gray salt and freshly ground black pepper
8thin slices prosciutto (4 oz)
