Cream Cheese and Parmesan Asparagus

I don’t know about you but I’m always on the hunt for easy and delicious side dishes.

I’m always leaning towards potatoes or corn because that is what I have on hand, but when Asparagus is on sale I am always sure to stock up. Typically I would just lightly drizzle some olive oil and some coarse salt and broil it for a few minutes, but my mom discovered a new and AMAZING way (found the recipe HERE) to make Asparagus. Seriously, my friends, it is delicious!! It’s called Cream Cheese and Parmesan Asparagus, and it’s definitely a new addition to the meal plan.

Here is how it looks:

Um, yeah… pretty delicious right?! It’s like you have your roll and veggies in one!! BUT… there’s also cream cheese and parmesan cheese making it even better.

I cannot wait to make these for the hubby because if it has cream cheese, I KNOW he will love them!

Delicious Cream Cheese and Parmesan Asparagus - wrapped in Puff Pastry. So delicious!

We didn’t modify the original recipe much except add more cream cheese (we love it at our house). Overall, this side dish was very easy to do and tasted phenomenal. I’m thinking I’ll make it the next time we grill some steak. I think it would be the perfect side dish!
