Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus
By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
- 8 or 9 spears depending on size asparagus
- 1/2 (16 oz) package thawed frozen phyllo pastry sheets
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 °F. Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Unwrap phyllo pastry and cut stack in half, lengthwise. Reserve remaining dough for a later use. Cover remaining phyllo lightly to keep dough from drying out. Take one piece of phyllo and brush lightly with melted butter. Sprinkle with cheese. Place 2 to 3 asparagus spears on short end of phyllo. Roll up, jelly-roll style. Place each piece, seam side down, on a baking sheet, brush with butter and sprinkle with cheese. Repeat until all the asparagus spears are rolled. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
