Asparagus with Prosciutto and Pine Nuts

Tender asparagus is quickly tossed in a flavorful butter sauce with garlic, pine nuts, and prosciutto for an Italian-inspired dish for a spring day.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the prosciutto, garlic, and pine nuts in the melted butter until the garlic is fragrant and the nuts begin to turn brown, about 2 minutes....
