About this Recipe

Cheesy asparagus on a light tart, this dish is the perfect appetizer for any large get together!

Ingredients

1/2 Pkg Tenderflake® Puff Pastry, thawed
1/2 lb (227 g) Asparagus, woody stems trimmed
1 cup (250 mL) Grated Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup (125 mL) Grated Provolone cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 375˚F (190˚C).

ROLL out puff pastry on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin to a 10 X 11 inch (25 X 27 cm) rectangle. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and trim the edges using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife. Score a 1 inch (2.5 cm) border around the outside of the pastry with a pizza cutter or a sharp knife. Prick the center of the pastry all over using a fork. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes until par-baked.

MEANWHILE bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook for 1-2 minutes or until bright green. Drain and place into a large bowl of ice water to stop cooking process. Drain well and set aside.

SPRINKLE par-baked pastry with Mozzarella, Provolone and half of the Parmesan cheese. Lay asparagus in a tidy row in the middle of the tart, to cover the center. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese and season with pepper.

RETURN to oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot.
