Holiday Vegetable Strudel

Recipe by LAURIE

This fancy looking side dish is a virtual melting pot of different regions! The strudel suggests Germany/Austria, but the phyllo screams Greece. Add the Italian ricotta and the swiss or asiago and you see what I mean. No matter where it belongs it is very yummy and looks very fancy even though it is not difficult to do.

VERY good--cheeses and vegetables could be changed, if you'd prefer different--we loved it just as written. Thank you, Laurie!
