Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Wash asparagus in cold water. Using a sharp knife, trim the bottom of each stalk where the green ends and the white/purple begins. Or, snap the ends of each stalk until it breaks.
Peel off a slice of prosciutto and spread with 1 tablespoon goat or cream cheese.
Wrap 3-4 asparagus stalks with the prosciutto (cheese side in) and place on parchment paper/mat lined baking sheet.
Top with freshly ground pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake for 8 minutes on top rack, (about 6 inches from heat source). Flip and bake another 8 minutes or until they reach desired crispness. Serve immediately.
