  • 250 g frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
  • 100 g butter, melted
  • 350 g asparagus spears
  • 200 g Woolworths grated mature Cheddar
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 2 t chives finely chopped
  • 1 x 250 g Woolworths full-cream chunky cottage cheese tub
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • Pink peppercorns, to garnish

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Brush the pastry with the melted butter, then cut into 10 cm x 15 cm strips. Wrap each strip around an asparagus spear. Arrange on a baking tray, sprinkle generously with the Cheddar and season with salt. Bake for 15 minutes, or until crunchy and golden. 2

Mix the chives into the cottage cheese and season to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and serve with the hot asparagus sticks. Garnish with the pink peppercorns.

Chef's note: These asparagus phyllo sticks are moreish and surprisingly light. Serve them as a hot snack with a refreshing glass of cider.”
