I should call this recipe “How I got my husband to eat asparagus”!!
These are so delicious and fun to eat. Great party appetizers too!
One bunch of fresh asparagus spears
Any grated cheese you have (Asiago, Parmesan)
Salt & Pepper
Chili flakes (optional)
Bring a large pot of water to the boil and blanch the asparagus for about 1 minute. Remove from the boiling water and lay on a plate to cool.
Open the pastry sheets and remove one at a time from the packet. Cut in half and brush lightly with butter. Sprinkle on the grated cheese, a few chilli flakes if using and season with salt and pepper. Lay a spear of asparagus along the edge of the pastry and roll it as tightly as possible. Place on a baking tray, you may need a couple of trays. Brush again with a bit more melted butter. Repeat with the remaining asparagus.
Place the trays into a 400 degree oven and bake for about 7-10 minutes until golden brown.
