Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  • 1 cup of shredded belgioioso cheese (mozzarella or parmesan)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface, ensuring it is smooth and even.
  3. Cut the pastry into thin strips, about 1 inch wide.
  4. Take one strip of pastry and wrap it around an asparagus spear, starting from the bottom and working your way up, slightly overlapping the pastry as you go. Repeat with the remaining asparagus spears.
  5. Place the wrapped asparagus spears on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each one.
  6. Brush olive oil over the pastry-wrapped asparagus and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the asparagus is tender-crisp.
  8. Remove from the oven and let the asparagus rolls cool slightly before serving.
  9. Sprinkle shredded belgioioso cheese over the warm asparagus rolls and serve immediately.
