Had fresh asparagus from a local farmer that needed using - what a wonderful recipe for Sunday brunch. I doubled the parm and the thyme as I love the flavors. Picture looks a bit wonked as I tried to take the strudel out in one piece! Would recommend cutting before removing! Served with mimosas.

- 2 shallots, sliced
- 2 cups portabellini mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups white mushrooms, slicd
