Asparagus filo rolls

An original idea to eat asparagus as an antipasto or with eggs. For this recipe we chose a light and crunchy type of puff pastry: filo.



Ingredients for 4 servings

16 fresh asparagus spears

2 sheets of filo pastry

grated Parmesan cheese

extra virgin olive oil

whole sea salt

Clean the asparagus spears one by one, cut the final part of the stalk, which is hard and sinewy and steam them for 5 minutes. Lay them on a plate and season them with salt. Roll out the filo pastry, brush it with oil, sprinkle it with grated Parmesan cheese and cut it into 25 x 7 cm stripes. Roll the asparagus spears one by one with the filo pastry. Put them on a tray, brush them with oil and bake at 180° for about 25 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and black pepper before serving.
