Asparagus Rolls

March 29, 2012

A quick, delicious snack or entree for a dinner party. Follow the Ravenous girls’ lead and serve with plenty of wine.

Makes 12

3 sheets puff pastry

12 fresh asparagus stalks

melted butter

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.

Thaw puff pastry sheets and cut each into 4. Wash and trim the asparagus, so the ‘woody’ bit is cut off.  Lay 1 piece of asparagus diagonally along a square of pastry. Salt and pepper as desired, and then roll up so that the asparagus sticks out from either end. Repeat 12 times. Brush the tops with melted butter.

Bake until pasty is fluffy and golden (7-10 mins). Enjoy immediately!
