Dietitian’s tip:
> Make sure the dough is properly thawed, preferably overnight in the fridge. Properly thawed dough won’t stick together and will be easier to work with. Stick with thinner spears of asparagus that are uniform in size so that the asparagus is done in the same time it takes to crisp the dough.
