Pancetta-Wrapped Asparagus

1/2 lb of asparagus
14 slices of thinly sliced pancetta (the thinner the better it will cook quicker)
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Tightly wrap each asparagus spear in a slice of pancetta. Place on a platter and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill. Once hot, grill the asparagus over moderate heat, turning often, until the pancetta is crisp and the asparagus is tender, about 8 minutes total, 3-4 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer to a serving platter and enjoy!

Serves 4.
