Strata is a dish that needs to be made ahead of time. The bread benefits from time spent in the fridge, letting the egg mixture soak in to every nook and cranny. If you forgot to roast the asparagus, you can still make the strata. Cut the pieces of asparagus fairly small and use as is. The flavor will not be quite as nice as if you had grilled or roasted the vegetable, but it will still be a little slice of spring.
