Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 12 rolls
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
In a bowl, add ricotta, parmesan, pepper, plus juice and zest of lemon. Mix well and set aside
In another bowl, add asparagus and drizzle with avocado oil. Toss with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Set aside
Unfold puff pastry sheets. Using a pizza cutter, cut along the folds to create 6 total strips. Cut each strip in half, for 12 total pieces
Add filling ingredients to the bottom center of each piece of puff pastry. Work in layers, and spread ingredients evenly across all of the pieces.
LAYER 1: ricotta mixture (about 1 Tablespoon each); LAYER 2: asparagus spears; LAYER 3: sundried tomatoes; LAYER 4: prosciutto
Starting at the bottom of each piece, roll pastry all the way up and lay open side down on parchment paper
Whisk egg with 1 Tablespoon of water to create an egg wash. Brush all visible sides of puff pastry
Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven, and allow to rest for about 5 minutes. WARNING: Filling will be extremely hot!
Make ricotta mixture before you thaw puff pastry, so flavors have time to develop
Thaw puff pastry sheets on the counter for about 40 minutes. They are ready to go when they unfold easily
Use a pizza cutter to cut the pastry sheets into pieces. Works better than a knife!
Filling will be extremely hot! Let rest for about 5 minutes before eating
