Espárragos verdes con Jamón
GREEN ASPARAGUS WITH HAM

Ingredients:

10 green asparagus
3 slices cooked ham
Butter
Flour
Milk
Grated Cheese
Salt

Preparation 

Remove and discard the hard parts from the asparagus. Place in boiling salted water for 10 to 12 minutes (depending on thickness). Use a larding needle to check they are tender, then remove from the pan and allow them to drain.

Wrap each asparagus in a slice of ham, but leave the tips exposed. Place on a baking tray.

Meanwhile, prepare a béchamel sauce: melt a tablespoonful of butter in a pan, add a tablespoonful of flour and slowly stir in the milk. Season and leave to cook for 5 minutes. Pour the sauce over the asparagus, again leaving the tips. Sprinkle with grated cheese and place under the grill until golden brown.

Serve immediately.
