- Preheat the oven to 400 °F.

- In another pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the butter or vegan margarine and saute the crumbs until crisp.
- Melt the remaining butter or vegan margarine in a small saucepan.
- Spread one phyllo pastry sheet out on a large board and brush with butter or margarine.
- Put another pastry sheet on top and brush with more butter or margarine.
- Repeat until all sheets have been used.
- Spread the onions evenly on top of the pastry, keeping the edges clear.
- Put the asparagus over the top of the onions and sprinkle with three-quarters of the crumbs and the parsley.
- Fold over 2 inches all around the pastry, then fold the long edges over to make a roll.
- Place the roll, seam side down, on a baking sheet and bend it around into a horseshoe shape.
- Brush with remaining melted butter or margarine and sprinkle with the remaining crumbs.
- Bake for 40 minutes, until golden and crisp.
