    Used these as a side dish w/ a moderately spicy main dish; not sure if they would be a bit bland on their own as an appetizer. Might need some extra herbs/spices if being used by themselves.

    Great taste! I added Cream Cheese and they were wonderful! They certainly did not last long! Next time I will make more!

    I've made this twice and guest's have loved it. Use thicker asparagus as they are easier to roll. I leave a 1/4 inch space at bottom edge so when you roll it it will seal better.
