INGREDIENTS
A "bunch" of thin Asparagus
A "bunch" Green onions (the part between the green and white)
1/4 lb or pkg Prosciutto/Serrano
3 cloves Garlic
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
A sprinkling Salt
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (freshly grated-not powder)
Instructions
Bend the asparagus to break off the tender parts. Discard the tougher ends. Chop the tender asparagus parts and the green beans into small pieces (each one just a bit bigger than a Tylenol).

Chop the green onions into small pieces (the part between the white and "green" green).

Chop the garlic into small pieces.

Saute
Saute the prosciutto in a minimal amount of olive oil until it is crispy. Then, remove from the pan. I put it on a plate with a paper towel to soak up any excess oil.

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for a few minutes. Then add the asparagus and cook for 10 minutes. (I cook a lot longer because I like Southern style veggies that are soft.) Add a sprinkle of salt while cooking. When done, add the prosciutto back into the pan until it is warmed up. Top with Parmesan cheese. Cover for a minute so the cheese melts a bit, and then serve immediately. OR;
