Recipe Name: Asparagus Wrapped In Herbed Phyllo Pastry Submitted by: Administrator

Number of Servings: 32

8 Thawed phyllo sheets
1/2 Cup(s) Extra-virgin olive oil
OR melted butter
1 Cup(s) Chopped fresh herbs*
32 Asparagus spears, trimmed
This winning presentation is achieved by wrapping and baking a single
asparagus spear in paper-thin phyllo pastry that's been sprinkled with
herbs. A platter of these spears looks impressive on a buffet table,
but be warned, they will disappear quickly. The asparagus can be
wrapped up to 2 days before baking; keep covered in the refrigerator.
*such as chives, tarragon, lemon, verbena, dill, thyme Work with 1
sheet of phyllo at a time; leave the others covered with plastic and a
damp towel. Brush one sheet with a little oil or butter, sprinkle with
2 tablespoons herbs. Cut sheet vertically into 4 strips. Place one
asparagus spear diagonally across the corner of one strip, then roll
tightly like a cigar. Tuck in remaining dough at end. Repeat with
remaining phyllo and asparagus. Transfer wrapped asparagus to platter,
cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Preheat oven to 425
degrees. Arrange wrapped asparagus on a baking sheet. Bake until
pastry is golden and asparagus is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve
warm. PER WRAP: 48 CAL.; 1G PROT.; 3G TOTAL FAT (1G SAT. FAT); 3G
