    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    If only thick stalks of asparagus are available, peel the stalks. Blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes, drain and run under cold water until cold. If you have thin stalks, do not peel them, and blanch for only 1 minute.

      This was both beautiful and tasty! I used phyllo dough, and cut the recipe in half, as there were only three of us for dinner. The combination of the goat cheese and leeks was a rich, creamy contrast to the flaky crunch of the pastry. For the asparagus, I used medium sized stalks that I microwaved for a minute instead of blanching. This would be a great dish for company, as you could prep the strudel ahead of time, and bake when you're ready for it. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers

      Like Kittencal, I substituted feta for goat cheese and dried mint. because that is what I had. I also went light on finely chopped onions. It was very good. I plan on repeating it, using leek and adding some shrimp as we love the blend of shrimp and asparagus, when family comes this Sunday.
