  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Step 2

    Fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook uncovered until bright green and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain.
  3. Step 3

    Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a clean cutting board. Brush with butter and sprinkle with 1 to 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Top with another piece of phyllo dough; brush with butter and sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Step 4

    Cut phyllo dough into 4 equal pieces and wrap 1 asparagus spear inside each piece of phyllo. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Step 5

    Repeat with remaining phyllo dough, butter, Parmesan cheese, and asparagus spears. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over wrapped asparagus.
  6. Step 6

    Bake in the preheated oven until phyllo is lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
