  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus.
  • Unwrap phyllo and cut the stack in half lengthwise.
  • Wrap 1 stack back up and place in the refrigerator.
  • Keep the other stack that you will be working with covered with a damp towel.
  • Take 1 sheet of phyllo, lay it out flat, and bush it with melted butter.
  • Sprinkle asiago or blend of cheeses down the strip.
  • Take 2-3 asparagus and lay them perpendicular to the strip at one end.
  • Roll up gently, the tops and ends of the asparagus will be showing.
  • Place the roll, seam side down, on a baking sheet.
