Cream Cheese and Parmesan Asparagus - wrapped in puff pastry and filled with cream cheese! { }

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

This recipe is It’s likeย having your rolls 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!

Our favorite way to have Asparagus - wrapped in puff pastry and filled with cream cheese!

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! Also, feel free to add several pieces of asparagus to each roll to make them more hearty and filling.

I made this tonight to add to dinner. So very delicious! My husband loved them! Thank you for this recipe.

    Lil' Luna

    So glad they were a hit… I’m thinking I need to make this again asap – it was so delicious!

morgan ashley

Could you not just use crescent rolls?

Chloe Jewell

I’m making these tonight for my mom. I think she’ll really like them and I can’t wait to see what she thinks!

Emily Upton

These look amazing and I can not wait to try them for a work luncheon we are having (I may have to make them once as a trial.. mainly so I can eat them all without sharing!)
I LOVE how you put where to find the pastry sheets!! It sounds so silly but I hate when I find recipes with new (to me) items and have no idea where to find them at the grocery store and I am left wandering the isles (or typing where to you find ‘x’ in the grocery store into my google search on the phone)!

    Lil' Luna

    LOL! I’ve done that wayyyy too many times. And the Pastry Sheets took forever to find. Hopefully it won’t be bad for you knowing they are in the freezer section. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Should I cook the asparagus a little first? Was baking it enough to soften the asparagus enough?

    Lil' Luna

    No need to cook it a little first… it should be just fine when you bake it. ๐Ÿ˜‰


This looks delish! Is it good room temp or chilled?


Is the flour used to dust the countertop?


Wondering how much of this can be done ahead of time? Would love to serve these at an open house but would need to prep as much as possible before hand. Do you think they’d be ok up to the wrapping them in Phyllo dough? HELP!!


These look so delicious and I plan on making them for my first family Christmas dinner at my new house. I was wondering if I could cook them in the morning and then just reheat closer to dinner when the Ham is out of the oven? Or could I cook them the day before and reheat on Christmas so I have more room in my oven? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Happy Holidays!


Add some fresh lemon juice, dried basil, and shredded parm cheese to the cream cheese. I’m telling you it will taste a thousand times better!!! I’ve used this recipe with asparagus/puff pastry (in squares not rolled up like this). Did you make the puff pastry dough more flat when unfrozen or kept it the the same before you cut into stripes?

    Lil' Luna

    Oh, that sounds delicious!!! I just keep it the way it is, before rolling it up. I don’t flatten it out. I will have to try your way!! Thanks!


Asparagus should be steamed lightly first. It makes it less dry and more tender.


Curious if anyone has tried these as an appetizer (prepared ahead and served at room temp).

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t made them too far in advance. They are best when fresh, but would be just fine served as appetizers. I wouldn’t make them more than a couple hours ahead. Hope that helps!

Sorrento Dreams

This looks so pretty so I decided to make it tonight for dinner…it was just ok…the cream cheese should be seasoned with something…too blan…next time I’m going to use Boursin cheese…

    Kristyn Merkley

    You could definitely add whatever you like to it. I’m glad you tried it ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!
