Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place asparagus spears and ¼-cup boiling water in a large roasting pan covered with foil. Place pan in a 400 degree oven, and steam asparagus until tender, about 12-15 minutes, transfer to paper towels and drain, wipe pan dry.

On waxed paper place 1-thin strip of prosciutto and sprinkle with 1-teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese. Roll prosciutto around asparagus spear, overlapping slightly to cover the spear. Repeat with remaining asparagus, prosciutto, and Parmesan cheese.

Roast in 400 degree oven until heated through, about 6-8 minutes.
