Preheat the oven to 180oC/160oC Fan/Gas Mark 4.

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the asparagus and boil for 2 mins. Drain in a colander and rinse in cold water until cold. Drain again. 

Lay the ham slices out on the work surface, top each with an asparagus spear then scatter over half the cheese. Now diagonally roll the ham around the asparagus, so the whole stem is wrapped in ham.

Place the ham wrapped asparagus on a baking tray, scatter over the remaining cheese and drizzle with a little olive oil and seasoning. Bake for 10mins or until the ham is crisp. Serve three per person, can be eaten warm or cold.
