Asparagus Tart

I am just a little late in posting this one!

Well for Easter I made your good old reliable deviled eggs and an asparagus tart, it was really good!

The presentation was very eye catching too.

Simple, simple, simple and really that is what you want don't you when your cooking a big holiday meal?!

Seriously I can not wait to get my double wall oven, someday!  I had so many things going in and out of the oven.

I found this delicious recipe on Pinterest, who then led me to Martha Stewards website.

What you need is:
5 oz shredded Gruyere cheese, I used a smoked version
2 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
15 pieces asparagus, ends trimmed and washed
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

How to make it:
Make sure your puff pastry is defrosted, I put mine in the fridge the night before
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
I lightly buttered a deep baking sheet
Lay your pastry out on the sheet, using your fingers try stretching it to the edges
Poke holes in the pastry with a fork
Bake for 15 minutes
Remove from oven let in deflate a bit
Sprinkle cheese over the pastry
Lay asparagus alternating tips and ends on top of cheese
Brush with olive oil
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Bake for 25 minutes

Slice how you desire!  It is really is fantastic!
