Asparagus Spanakopita

  • Place asparagus in a steamer basket. Place over 1" of water in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover and steam for 5 minutes or until crispy-tender.
  • Place one sheet of phyllo dough in a 13"x 9"x 2" baking dish coated with cooking spray; trim if necessary. Spritz dough with butter-flavored spray. Repeat layers nine times.
  • Arrange spinach, feta cheese and asparagus over the top.
  • Cover and repeat 10 times with the remaining phyllo dough. Cut into 12 pieces.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
  • For sauce, melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Stir in lemon juice, salt and parsley. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Serve spanakopita over the sauce.
