Cook's Notes

A classic room-temperature antipasto, here with pancetta substituting for the traditional prosciutto, is transformed on the grill. You could stick with prosciutto or even substitute really good bacon -- not a double-smoked one, though, or the smokiness will overpower the asparagus. --Mario Batali

    Even with 2 bunches of asparagus, the amount of citronette will have the spears sitting in more of a soup than what's shown in the picture (a drizzle). Still, the taste was good. I doubled up the spears and used 1 piece of pancetta for 2 spears and still found the dish to be quite meaty. I also coated on some neutral tasting oil (grapeseed) before putting them on the hot grill. Next time I will apply oil to the slightly-dry pancetta to make them easier to wrap. Don't advise using bacon.
